Hi Ralf,

Is there a reason for this, I thought the log was there to help
diagnose what went wrong, and that more information is better?
Granted, the above cmd will produce a number of perhaps annoying
lines of usage instructions on stderr on most systems. But hey,
compare that to tossing the error message when you have a lib.exe
that unexpectedly fails.

All that said, I realize that lib.exe is fairly exotic, and I
understand if you don't want the ar usage in the log, I just
wanted to highlight that this is not the only thing you are
cutting out.
