Ticket #3712 (new task)

|Test Case:||Blocked By:|
The proposal is to add a new option -dynamic-lib, to be used when building a shared library. It would be both a compile-time and a link-time option, and could be used with --make to build a complete shared library in one go. It would avoid the pitfalls caused by there being combinations of -dynamic and -fPIC don't do what the user expects.
Specifically, -dynanmic-lib would imply -dyanamic, -fPIC where necessary, and -shared when linking.
