Thanks for telling us the solution.
clang and ld have different command-line invocation conventions. For example,
you can call
ld -o foo.so -rpath /cross/lib object.o
whereas the calling convention for clang (as well as gcc) is
$CC -o foo.so -Wl,-rpath,/cross/lib object.o
libtool needs to pass specific linker options when creating a shared library.
I think this explains it.
