Upstream libtool doesn't support this yet, as far as I understand, but
Debian's libtool package should have a patch in it that may make it
work. There have been quite some discussion on this, see for example:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=405239

But unfortunately it has not yet been resolved.
