  Hum, possible.

  Because dependancies between "being built" libraries is a problem in
practice. It is very likely that I did so to ensure that the common case
I can test and debug and must have working do indeed work.
  I takes patches about configure/Makefile and shared libraries but with
a lot of caution, because usually I get patches which work for the platform
or the use case for which the person was interested in but tend to break
othert setups. It is extremely hard to assess that there is no regression
in configure/Makefile patches.
