ok, that's clear. For the current case I suppose that it's be the same if the 
library is C++ or C. To be more concisely, if I create a dynamic C++ library 
(*) (libXenofoo), with some *.cpp files. I understand that:

- to compile the files I have to pass the POSIX cflags obtained by xeno-config
- to link that library, I have to pass the POSIX ldflags obtained by xeno-config 
(wrap, etc)

After, if I have a program the uses libXenofoo (dynamic)
- to compile my program, If I don't uses any __Xeno__ * flag I don't need to 
pass the POSIX cflags. Right?
- to link the program against libXenofoo, I understand that yes, that I should 
uses the POSIX ldflags obtained by xeno-config (wrap, etc). Right?

I don't understand that, probably because I use cmake and hides this. But, I 
have created my static version of libXenofoo passing _only_ one time and the 
program have worked. Please, could you elaborate a bit more this?


(*) C++ simple, nothing sophisticated with templates, dynamic memory 
allocations, garbage collection. Some classes taking care about memory, etc.
