Subject: buildlink ignoring my share libraries!

I have reproducable cases of pkgs where the ./buildlink/lib symlinks are not
set up for the lib*so.* files, but only for the static lib*.a variants.
I get this effect with multiple pkgs, one example is devel/pango.
This leads to stupid build errors, because most pkgs do not pass all the
library dependencies, but rely on NEEDED entries in the so's. In the pango
case it is just a simple, all telling "Fatal error." message.

This started when I upgraded userland and all X related pkgs ~two weeks
ago, but I did change too much at the same time to be sure what exactly
triggered it.

I starred at .work.log and PKG_DEBUG_LEVEL=2 output, but could not spot
anything obvious.

Any hints how to debug this?
