- Avoid using libtool, it is troublesome on Windows, sonames have no 
meaning on Windows anyway.
- Get around the fact that Automake doesn't like to place executables in 
/lib directories, since we're avoiding libtool, we need to complile the 
shared lib as an exe.
- Get around the fact that Automake has no way of setting per source 
file CFLAGS with the use of libfast.a.
- Link the Shared Library against the object files rather than the 
libraries, otherwise, you get a link time error.

What does "wrt" means?
