Well, I haven't found the cause of this yet, but here's a test case. It is fun to do ar -t libbar.a and see:

because every libbar.a needs two libfoo.a's!

Reported by Daniel Macks from the fink project, but reproducible on linux as well as darwin.

I'll look for a fix later on. No I don't want to commit this right now, just wanted to share :)

I eliminated one of the two static archives, so this should make libtool either half as good or twice as good, depending on your point of view.
All other tests behave as before. Ok?

Looks good to me, except that we normally name test cases according to what is being tested, rather than who discovered the bug (otherwise most of our tests would be called bfriesen.test!).

Please rename to or similar, and commit :-)
