Cool!  :)

I'm not sure why this is happening.  We are using libtool to do the
'relinking' (turning a bunch of little .o files into a .o file for the
whole library), with the 'Relink' command in Makefile.rules.  I am not
even close to being a libtool expert, but if you're interested in seeing
what is going wrong, that would be the place to start looking.  Perhaps
others have more insight.  :)
