It could be, but it is not necessarily being shared to other processes. 
Don't get me wrong, I like the idea but for me there's no difference in 
this case between .o and .so ;-)

Hmmm yep for rpm building the idea is really good but for a normal 
install using ./configure it lacks with the LIBDIR functionality ... 
idomod.(s)o will be in /usr/lib whereas ido2db or icinga binaries are in 
/usr/local/icinga/bin/ ... I think there's need of a bit more discussion 
how to spread the install outside of /usr/local/icinga (just regarding 
uninstall). If it even makes sense?
I could think of a special configure flag for rpmbuilding like 
--with-sharedlib-dir or similar.

Maybe Christoph or Hendrik could provide more infos on that.

Kind regards,
