Hmm.  I looked more closely and see that it is indeed passing
-module to libtool.  It was my understanding that this (among
other things) turned off building the static archive.  I checked
a Debian system and none of the plugins have corresponding
static archives.  But i checked /usr/pkg/lib/gtk/themes/engines
on NetBSD and see that it also has the static archives.

Is this a bug in the pkgsrc libtool or am i just missing something?
