           Description of compile mode:
           Compile a source file into a libtool library object.
           This mode accepts the following additional options:
           -o OUTPUT-FILE
                  set the output file name to OUTPUT-FILE
                  do not suppress compiler output for multiple passes
                  try to build PIC objects only
                  try to build non-PIC objects only
                  do not build a '.o' file suitable for static linking
                  only build a '.o' file suitable for static linking
                  pass FLAG directly to the compiler
           COMPILE-COMMAND is a command to be used in creating a 'standard' object
           file from the given SOURCEFILE.
           The  output file name is determined by removing the directory component
           from SOURCEFILE, then substituting the C source code suffix  '.c'  with
           the library object suffix, '.lo'.
           Description of link mode:
           -bindir BINDIR
                  specify  path to binaries directory (for systems where libraries
                  must be found in the PATH setting at runtime)
           -dlopen FILE
                  '-dlpreopen' FILE if it cannot be dlopened at runtime
           -dlpreopen FILE
                  link in FILE and add its symbols to lt_preloaded_symbols
                  allow symbols from OUTPUT-FILE to be resolved with dlsym(3)
           -export-symbols SYMFILE
                  try to export only the symbols listed in SYMFILE
           -export-symbols-regex REGEX
                  try to export only the symbols matching REGEX
                  search LIBDIR for required installed libraries
           -lNAME OUTPUT-FILE requires the installed library libNAME
                  build a library that can dlopened
                  disable the fast-install mode
                  link a not-installable executable
                  declare that a library does not refer to external symbols
           -o OUTPUT-FILE
                  create OUTPUT-FILE from the specified objects
           -objectlist FILE
                  Use a list of object files found in FILE to specify objects
           -precious-files-regex REGEX
                  don't remove output files matching REGEX
           -release RELEASE
                  specify package release information
           -rpath LIBDIR
                  the created library will eventually be installed in LIBDIR
           -R[ ]LIBDIR
           -version-info CURRENT[:REVISION[:AGE]]
                  specify library version info [each variable defaults to 0]
           -weak LIBNAME
                  declare that the target provides the LIBNAME interface
           -Xcompiler FLAG
                  pass linker-specific FLAG directly to the compiler
           -Xlinker FLAG
                  pass linker-specific FLAG directly to the linker
           -XCClinker FLAG
                  pass link-specific FLAG to the compiler driver (CC)
           All other options (arguments beginning with '-') are ignored.
           Every other argument is treated as a filename.  Files ending  in  '.la'
           are  treated as uninstalled libtool libraries, other files are standard
           or library object files.
           If the OUTPUT-FILE ends in '.la', then a libtool  library  is  created,
           only  library  objects  ('.lo' files) may be specified, and '-rpath' is
           required, except when creating a convenience library.
           If OUTPUT-FILE ends in '.a' or '.lib', then a standard library is  cre-
           ated using 'ar' and 'ranlib', or on Windows using 'lib'.
           If  OUTPUT-FILE ends in '.lo' or '.o', then a reloadable object file is
           created, otherwise an executable program is created.
           Description of execute mode:
           Automatically set library path, then run a program.
           This mode accepts the following additional options:
           -dlopen FILE
                  add the directory containing FILE to the library path
           This mode sets the  library  path  environment  variable  according  to
           '-dlopen' flags.
           If  any  of  the  ARGS  are  libtool executable wrappers, then they are
           translated into their corresponding  uninstalled  binary,  and  any  of
           their required library directories are added to the library path.
           Then, COMMAND is executed, with ARGS as arguments.
           (only BSD-compatible install options are recognized).
           Description of finish mode:
           Complete the installation of libtool libraries.
           Each LIBDIR is a directory that contains libtool libraries.
           The  commands that this mode executes may require superuser privileges.
           Use the '--dry-run' option if you just want to see what would  be  exe-
           Description of uninstall mode:
           Remove libraries from an installation directory.
           RM  is  the  name of the program to use to delete files associated with
           each FILE (typically '/bin/rm').  RM-OPTIONS are options (such as '-f')
           to be passed to RM.
           If  FILE  is  a  libtool  library, all the files associated with it are
           deleted.  Otherwise, only FILE itself is deleted using RM.
           Description of clean mode:
           Remove files from the build directory.
           RM is the name of the program to use to delete  files  associated  with
           each FILE (typically '/bin/rm').  RM-OPTIONS are options (such as '-f')
           to be passed to RM.
           If FILE is a libtool library, object or program, all the files  associ-
           ated  with it are deleted. Otherwise, only FILE itself is deleted using
           When reporting a bug, please describe a test case to reproduce  it  and
           include the following information:
           shell: /bin/sh
           compiler flags:
                  -g -O2
