Does the fact that the libtool passes all 83 tests, 
including the


file mean that we're good?

If it's not enough, I can post to comp.unix.sco.programmer
and see if one of the SCO engineers has a definitive
answer.  I already had one of them show me how to do a
   dump -Lv /lib/
sort of command to see the NEEDED lines which supposedly
are evidence of an interlibrary dependency.

I'm not sure I have enough knowhow to create
a test by hand otherwise.
