[arch-general] libSoundTouch.a but no libSoundTouch.so

I'm trying to build Psychosynth on "Don't Panic". There are are a few deps, 
some of which I need to build from source (OIS, Ogre, and CEGUI). Soundtouch 
is also a dep, and is available from the Archlinux repos, but 
running ./configure on Psychosynth, it failed to find the libsoundtouch lib.

Looking in /usr/lib, libsoundtouch has a libSoundtouch.a file, but no 
libSoundTouch.so file, which I presume is why ./configure for Psychosynth 
cannot find the library.

Is this a bug, and if so, where should I report it?

I did also download the soundtouch tarball from their site, but with 
configure, and make problems.

./configure complained that it couldn't find automake-1.9, which is true, as 
the version installed is automake-1.10. I created a symlink from automake-1.9 
pointing to automake-1.10, then ./configure ran to completion, but then make 
complained that it couldn't find libtools, even though it's installed 
in /usr/bin.

Make said it was looking for libtools in ../libtools, but I'm clueless as to 
where that is. Any help on that?

Any help/suggestions welcome.
