Not using ELF? That's almost unforgivable :P
I dislike libtool intensely, but it should be possible to make it used
conditionally fairly easially. Then again, if all it takes is a few lines
in environment.mak then there probably is no point.

difficult to say how the ctor mechanism works, which might explain why
that trick doesn't do it for you.
