If udev follows standard libtool practices, they get installed by
running the libtool script in the source tree (generated by configure),
with the flag --mode=install and with further arguments that mirror how
the library would normally be installed, i.e. "install -m755 libudev.la
/usr/lib/libudev.la" (or whatever path).  Same for the libtool-generated
wrapper scripts.

libtool is supposed to handle the dereferencing of the .la file to its
.so in .libs, copying the .so into the target directory, etc.

(Alternately, the automake-generated Makefile targets should also work,
I would expect, as in one of the other posts in this thread?  Not that I
know which targets apply offhand.)

True.  I might look in the next day or two as well, given what I know
about autoconf/automake, but will definitely be watching to see what
people come up with too.
