It is my understanding, that the combination of using lib_LTLIBRARY in
your and using --enable-shared in configure is a request
to build a shared library.

I can understand that a noinst_ or check_ prefix undoes this request.
But it would be nice if there were a more obvious switch than adding
a dummy -rpath setting.  Now that I know this, the node `Building
Libtool Libraries Conditionally' is quite clear.  I did not read it well,
because it was not the subject I was looking for, and it talks about 
EXTRA_ libraries, whereas I was searching for noinst_ or check_.
