I couldn't reproduce the problem on RHEL 5.8, using latest trunk. 
Whether or not there were qpid libraries installed it seemed to pick up 
the correct ones from the build for me).

That said, we should probably be linking against the .la with libtool? 
That seems to have been the approach previously which didn't cause these 

Attached is a patch that would do this. Are you able to test it on the 
system that caused problems to ensure it does actually fix the problem? 
It works for me on Fedora 17 and RHEL 5.8, but as I say I couldn't 
reproduce the problem in the first place.
