I certainly wouldn't mind a branch that bypasses libtool - it could be very handy any time we run into something like this.

Paul: Thanks for the explanation!!!!!!  I'm going to give it a whirl!

BTW - you can do dynamic linking on BG/Q - but it's tough to do and basically frowned upon - so we're not doing it for MOOSE.

I'm working up a branch for you that bypasses libtool altogether - might need John to help  update the moose rule that currently uses our libtool, though.

Would that help for the short term?
