The problem was that the line 18 was causing object files in lib/
being incorporated into libargp.a. So, if you change a .c file
in lib/, rebuild lib/, then relink, you don't get the .o file from
libmailutils.a, instead you get the OLD one from libargp.a.

This isn't QNX specific, except that its possible that newer
versions of libtool, which work fine on QNX except don't support
shared objects, contain some features that may work around this,
I'm not sure.
