Yeah, we had the same problem and had to write the <tag> rule to prevent
rule tagrule ( .name : type ? : property-set )
#ECHO $(.name) $(type) ;
local ret = "" ;
if ( $(.name) = $(name) & $(type) = SHARED_LIB )
# return itga.so, get extention for SHARED_LIB
local ext = [ type.generated-target-suffix $(type) : $(property-set) ] ;
ret = $(name:S=.$(ext)) ;
return $(ret) ;
