Thanks for the patch.  I currently cannot connect to franz, but once
again will commit a variant of it: libtool always uses the

  if test -z "`echo __ELF__ | $CC -E - | grep __ELF__`"

for detecting ELF (actually, it also deals with openbsd 2.8 on powerpc)
and seems to think that the versioned dylib exts are always needed.

Pls check.
