"The makefiles" and/or "the make process" is the only answer that I
can give.

I configure the toolchain (for the Alpha) with:

./configure --enable-shared --enable-commonbfdlib

I seem to recall discovering at some point that using both of those
--enable options was necessary to get a working shared library built.
