Yes, these are all known problems. Shared libraries suck! :-)

You need Autoconf 2.13 and Automake 1.4.

Hmm, I really dislike this. I would prefer to only link application
that actually use crypt() with -lcrypt. Adding dependencies in the
(shared) libraries would be a lot better, but I don't know if this
works on all (relevant) platforms.

I guess we have to decide how to solve this sometime soon.
