 4 Invoking `libtool'
 The `libtool' program has the following synopsis:
      libtool [OPTION]... [MODE-ARG]...
 and accepts the following options:
      Display libtool configuration variables and exit.
      Dump a trace of shell script execution to standard output.  This
      produces a lot of output, so you may wish to pipe it to `less' (or
      `more') or redirect to a file.
      Don't create, modify, or delete any files, just show what commands
      would be executed by libtool.
      Display basic configuration options.  This provides a way for
      packages to determine whether shared or static libraries will be
      Do not remove duplicate dependencies in libraries.  When building
      packages with static libraries, the libraries may depend
      circularly on each other (shared libs can too, but for those it
      doesn't matter), so there are situations, where -la -lb -la is
      required, and the second -la may not be stripped or the link will
      fail.  In cases where these duplications are required, this option
      will preserve them, only stripping the libraries that libtool
      knows it can safely.
      Same as `--mode=finish'.
      Display a help message and exit.  If `--mode=MODE' is specified,
      then detailed help for MODE is displayed.
      Use MODE as the operation mode.  By default, the operation mode is
      inferred from the MODE-ARGS.
      If MODE is specified, it must be one of the following:
           Compile a source file into a libtool object.
           Automatically set the library path so that another program
           can use uninstalled libtool-generated programs or libraries.
           Complete the installation of libtool libraries on the system.
           Install libraries or executables.
           Create a library or an executable.
           Delete installed libraries or executables.
           Delete uninstalled libraries or executables.
      Print libtool version information and exit.
    The MODE-ARGS are a variable number of arguments, depending on the
 selected operation mode.  In general, each MODE-ARG is interpreted by
 programs libtool invokes, rather than libtool itself.


* Compile mode                Creating library object files.
* Link mode                   Generating executables and libraries.
* Execute mode                Debugging libtool-generated programs.
* Install mode                Making libraries and executables public.
* Finish mode                 Completing a library installation.
* Uninstall mode              Removing installed executables and libraries.
* Clean mode                  Removing uninstalled executables and libraries.
