[libssh2] libtool and automake?

I want to fix libssh2 in these aspects:

  - build shared libs on virtually all posix systems

  - install both shared and static libs on make install (if both are built)

The first point is very easily done using libtool (and frankly, a lot of hard
work if done without it). But in order to use libtool, we're more or less
forced to also use automake. So, would anyone object if I made the transition
to use these tools?

The second point comes automatically if we use libtool and automake, but can
of course easily be made even without them.

Using Tomcat but need to do more? Need to support web services, security?
