libtool should be able to build shared libraries without any special
flag such as `-r', it should figure out what to do by itself.  I don't 
know what `-r' means, so maybe it is interacting negatively with
libtool's code.

Nope, libtool uses this approach only for emulating dlopening of
modules that it can't create as shared libraries.

make distclean; configure --disable-shared

I'll move the discussion about libtool and Amiga into the libtool
mailing list, in my next reply.
