That's OK.

I get the impression I'll have to have a look at the source to see
what it is doing here, but it sounds a bit like Make expands the
library to its full name but does not add the new name to the list of
prerequisites - which is a bit odd.

It's also a little odd that -l<name> is expanded and then the expanded
version is passed to the command line. That seems to assume that GCC
is in use; other compilers might need the -l parameter (or a different
parameter altogether).
