I concure that this is a huge issue, and I already submitted a patch on Oct
22 /2000 that fixed this for linux. I don't know why the libtool team didn't
fix it up (I probably broke other OSes with it) and include it as it
resolves this.

I've reattached my patch to this email, but don't know if it will still
apply to the current CVS head, but try it and see if it solves your
packaging problem.

What I've been doing for debs with inter-depends is having a local copy of in my debian packages with the patch applied for building my
project. Then it adds the right -L options.

If the patch fails, I can send you the I use in private.

Good luck.
