I have a precompiled shared object that I need to distribute with the package I'm building, how do I get automake to copy the shared object to the lib/ folder where it places all of the rest of the shared objects that it compiles during the compilation process?


This old workaround seems to be still working

mylibdir = $(libdir)
dist_mylib_SCRIPTS = libxxx.so
