when i start configure on some programms i get following message: 

checking if libtool supports shared libraries... yes

*** Warning: the command libtool uses to detect shared libraries,
*** /usr/bin/file, produces output that libtool cannot recognize.
*** The result is that libtool may fail to recognize shared libraries

Maybe its because all libaries are linked into /usr/lib , ...
Is this a problem ?
