Yup--I noticed that, and considered pointing it out myself, but
then I figured you'd probably do it for me. Thanx. ;)

As for that, isn't there a mythical "patched" version of libtool
that prunes out those crappy duplicates? libtool is the real
problem here--it takes everything wholesale from relevant .la
scripts and doesn't bother to sort any of it out.
Perhaps the order of -L and -l options matters, but when you have
"-lpthread -lpthread -lpthread -lpthread -lpthread"...obviously
it's no harm at all to condense that.
Maybe I'll try to hack on the libtool script myself to fix that.
Shouldn't be that hard...
