In that case I suspect DEFAULT_LIBPATH is magic to the OS X linker and 
you were just lucky :-)

It looks like the "shared" option is the reason.  If you were to rebuild

I strongly suspect you will not see the problem.

     Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
