[Opendnssec-develop] libtool and dependency in statics

from a bit of experimenting after a build failure in the enforcer, I just found 
out that libtool appears to do some form of lazy linking in its output: 
libhsm.la depends on libldns.la, but it doesn't remember its location (i don't 
use default paths for self-built software)

So when building the enforcer libtool wants libldns.la to be in /usr/local/lib, 
and since the configure there rightfully does not contain an optin --with-ldns=, 
it fails. Until i remove libhsm.la at the target (in this case 

Does anyone if there is some magic chant for libtool to include the needed ldns 
function in libhsm.la (or let it search the right location for libldns.la, it 
does seem to be written into that .la file, but appears to be ignored...)
