But it's better to keep it for some time if we decide to switch to a
separate library, just for testing.

I missed it completely.  But it looks like it's undocumented :-(

I guess it's something unrelated.

I just want to make it possible to link MC against an external library.
IT's better if it's normally installed.  If it's not, but it's created at
some point, but has documented API, we could instruct users how to compile
and use this library.  If the library is just a temporary file and nobody
cares about its API, then it may be better to stay with the included
sources for a while.
