Corrections to the previous post:

: - NOSTATICLIB: Prevents build and install of a static version of the given
:   library (libNAME.a).  Intended for initial use with libamu and libcc1
:   (part of egcs).  Not named NOSTATIC as this could be confused with
:   "static program linkage."

Ahem.  Prevents build and install only if NOPIC is not set.  (That way NOPIC
systems will have *something*.)  That's not reflected in the posted diff,
but was added to my working source.

Additionally, I've already added changes to libamu and egcs that install
their shared libraries only, and only if on a non-NOPIC system.  They still
need the above change in order to prevent build of the static libraries.
