After Alistair's recent change to make ELF PLISTs default, some
programs have problems in the installation phase. In particular, I
think of devel/xdelta (and some others) where the problem lies in the
fact that they install a library '', and libtool only
generates symlinks for '' and ''.

What is the proper target to fix -- the PLISTs (removing the
'' entries) or libtool (making it create the
'' symlinks)?
