When building freetype-demos with slibtool (https://dev.midipix.org/cross/slibtool) the build fails.
slibtool: error: output file prefix does not match its (archive) suffix; the expected prefix was 'lib'
This is because the build
graph suffix is incorrectly set to
.a instead of
-module is missing. Making these two changes fixes the problem. GNU libtool did not expose this problem because it is overly permissive and doesn't follow their own documentation.
