[Gdal-dev] static libraries revamped (was: new build strategy for org/orgsf_frmts/)

i investigated a bit what's going on, but i still don't understand what is the 
difference between cygwin and the other gnu targets.

as far as i could see the problem is not partial linking per se, since i could 
build without errors ogr/ogr.o if i omited a few object files. the problem 
seem to be linked with the weak symbols associated with default destructors 
of a few classes.

i have to admit that my knowledge of the c++ linking rules is far too flebile 
to understand the origin of the problem :-(. i will try a couple more idea 

unless someone figures out what's going on in the cygwin case, i'll need to 
implement a different strategy for linking all the objects into libgdal.a.

Frank, in that case the cleaner way would be to move the ogr executables into 
a ogr/apps directory :-/. what's your opinion? is it feasible?
