Since CVS revision 1.294 my convenience library on AIX
has broken.  This seems to be because that patch
removes $convenience from $deplibs, but AIX (at least
with my configuration) has $whole_archive_flag_spec='
'.  This problem was anticipated by chrisp in reply to
support #100049 on Sun 09/09/2001.  There was a
discussion on the libtool list in May '01 regarding the
empty $whole_archive_flag_spec, but apparently there
was never a resolution (libtool.m4 in today's cvs still
contains _LT_AC_TAGVAR(whole_archive_flag_spec, $1)=' '
at line 2859).

Is this a bug introduced by the 1.294 patch or is there
a way around it for AIX?

-Adam Thomason

P.S. This aside, libtool has made my life much easier;
thanks to all the developers for their efforts.
