I would bet that this one is giving you trouble, but...

I was using that on a hint from the automake manual:

Is that a known problem?

why are you using multiple convenience libraries? If you're not going to
install any of them, and the result is one final binary, you should just
list all the sources to that one target.

All good questions; mostly because I am not completely sure yet that a) I won't want to be able to install the sub-libraries later, b) my hand-built makefiles do it this way already, so I was minimizing change, and c) this is my first run creating an autoconfiscated project.

Oh, and d) when I try to do a "make dist" with my thousands of source files, I was met with a "command line too long" error. So I was trying to keep things in smaller chunks to see if that would help all of the make targets work better.


This also helps if you change
some of the source files as it only needs to re-perform the final link
step instead of having to do one or more ar calls.

And I somehow doubt you want to use lib_LTLIBRARIES given the name
(which will install the libraries as well).
