Ensure your configure.{ac,in} contains at least:

Add to your
noinst_LIBRARIES = libtarget.a

You can use libtarget_a_SOURCES to have it build libtarget.a from source
code, or perhaps make interesting use of libtarget_a_LIBADD to include other

The key to convenience libraries is the noinst_ prefix, and the key to not
using libtool just to make an archive is to use the _LIBRARIES suffix
instead of _LTLIBRARIES.
