I think this one can be solved by adding a dependency on config.status;
testing my theory now, and hopefully I will have a patch in the near future.

Unfortunately, I don't know libtool as well as I'd like.  Here, you may
be better off asking on the bug-libtool gnu org list.  I do know that
GNU Coding Conventions state that 'make install' should not do any
compilation or linking if 'make all' is up-to-date, but I also know that
libtool has a documented bug of not being able to always obey that rule
on some platforms, because it must do a relink as part of installation
to get path dependencies right.  On the other hand, I seem to recall
that on Linux, where .so can be compiled with rpath information up
front, libtool can be smart enough to avoid the relink, but I don't know
the magic to make that happen.
