There's another behavior I've noticed which can add confusion. Immediately
after compilation, there is no "./libs/lt-myprogram". It doesn't get
created until the first invocation of "myprogram":

### First, touch fs-test.c and rebuild.

   $ touch subversion/tests/libsvn_fs/fs-test.c
   $ make
-Wmissing-prototypes -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations -pthread
-Wwrite-strings -Wshadow -I./subversion/include -I./subversion
-I/usr/local/include/neon -I/usr/local/apache2/include
-I/usr/local/apache2/include -I/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.3/include -o
subversion/tests/libsvn_fs/fs-test.o -c subversion/tests/libsvn_fs/fs-test.c
   cd subversion/tests/libsvn_fs && /bin/sh
/home/cmpilato/projects/subversion/libtool --tag=CC --silent --mode=link gcc
 -g -O2 -g -O2 -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -Wstrict-prototypes
-Wmissing-declarations -pthread -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -DNE_LFS -DSVN_DEBUG
-DAP_DEBUG -Wpointer-arith -Wwrite-strings -Wshadow
-L/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.3/lib -rpath /usr/local/lib -o fs-test fs-test.o
/usr/local/apache2/lib/libaprutil-0.la -lgdbm -ldb-4.3 -lexpat
/usr/local/apache2/lib/libapr-0.la -lrt -lm -lcrypt -lnsl -lpthread -ldl -lz

### Is there a .libs lt-wrapper? Nope.

   $ ls subversion/tests/libsvn_fs/.libs/lt-fs-test
   ls: subversion/tests/libsvn_fs/.libs/lt-fs-test: No such file or directory

### Run fs-test for the first time since the build.

   $ subversion/tests/libsvn_fs/fs-test list
   Test # Mode Test Description
   ------ ----- ----------------
     1 begin a txn, check its name, then close it
     2 open an existing transaction by name
     3 begin a txn, get the txn root, and add a file
    27 test complex copies (branches)
    28 test checksums
    29 calculating closest history-affecting copies

### How about that lt-wrapper now? Yup.

   $ ls subversion/tests/libsvn_fs/.libs/lt-fs-test
