I made this my default setup. It is so much easier to keep the
libraries clean from object files!

On a second thought, I have the feeling that we should eventually
deprecate the C:BUILD interface and create something based entirely on

My current design would be something like the OS X application
bundles. Suppose the library SALZA. You would have

   +-----> binary.fas
   +-----> library.a
   +-----> configuration.lsp
   +-----> object/
          +-------> salza.o
          +-------> ...

On a single run one would get both the loadable file and the object
files that could be linked together with other libraries to form a new
image or a shared library.
