If you go to the work directory and run "./configure --help" the output
contains this:

  --enable-shared[=PKGS]
                          build shared libraries [default=no]
  --enable-static[=PKGS]
                          build static libraries [default=yes]

This means shared libraries aren't built by default, but you can enable
them by adding "CONFIGURE_ARGS=--enable-shared" to the port Makefile.
You'll have to make some changes to pkg-plist but running "make check-plist'
will help you with that.

You can also delete files/patch-ltmain.sh.  USES=libtool handles that now.
