we do that because we want to be able to build libardour as a shared
library. it speeds the development process, because we can work on
libardour without going through the massive relink of ardour itself.

>why dont you build with libtool ?

it was responsible for more pain in quasimodo, softwerk and the early
years of ardour than any other tool i have ever come across. like the
rest of the autotools, its really crap. alas, there is nothing else
that can replace it, so we're stuck with it.
