Is that true for all systems, even those where the usual shared library
extension is different, e.g., .sl on HP-UX systems, .dll on w32 ones,

You can avoid warnings about the 'lib' prefix by making these things
modules instead of libraries, as in
  opengl_la_LDFLAGS = -module -avoid-version

that will under the hood create a .so in the hidden .libs (or _libs)
subdirectory, and install them in the right place.  For modules however,
it is suggested to put them in package-specific directories such as
pkglibdir not in libdir; you'd get the former by adding them to
pkglib_LIBRARIES instead.

This is ok, but INCLUDES is an old name; use AM_CPPFLAGS instead.

This is wrong and broken.  LIBS is only for libraries, -l and -L flags.
For other link flags, use AM_LDFLAGS or per-target flags like in my
example above.  The -shared flag should not be needed at all for
libraries created by libtool, however: it will add that flags for you
it appropriate (or another one for a different compiler).

You can avoid those warnings by heeding them, and creating a m4
directory in your tree.

Hope that helps.
