Libtool does not link binaries against "nonsensical libraries."

What is the exact behavior that you're seeing?  Most unexpected
behavior on the part of libtool can be explained by the content of the
various *.la files on the system in question.  These files are
essentially useless on Linux for system libraries, so you might want
to try backing up and removing all *.la files in /lib* and /usr/lib*.
Then "make distclean" and try again.
