Is there any reason that the two libraries have to be compiled as two separate 
libraries if they depend on each other? You can also have Make create just one 
library out of the files in the two directories. You can keep the code 
organized in the structure, but that doesn't mean you can't build it all 
together into one thing.

Or, if you switch to shared libraries, maybe you can use a linker flag if it's 
supported, such as '-undefined dynamic_lookup' so that the symbols will only be 
resolved when the test program runs.  That only works if you are not running 
the tests as soon as they are built, because you need both libraries to be 
already built to run.
