[JDEV] Shared Libraries

I don't have a ton of experience in this area, so I'm going to throw it
out here and try to get some feedback...

Background: we're currently working on a common library for jabber that
contains most of the core XML and protocol functionality.  This library is
threaded via pth, yet another library.

What I'm wondering is, first, should libpth be compiled statically into
libjabber (since it's required anyway)?  Second, should libjabber be
compiled statically into applications by default?  If not, what's the best
way to handle it?

I know the tools we're using, autoconf, automake, and libtool, can handle
just about any configuration, I'm just not sure which way things should be
by default or what is the "correct" way to do it.
