Sorry for the late reply; I wanted to see why the dynamic_example directory
didn't work for but got sidetracked.  Still haven't had time to look at

Re the Makefile.am issue, if you change Makefile.am, you must rerun automake
and then configure.  That will automatically create Makefile.in and Makefile
for you.

> "my_test_lib_2.h").
> The error generating during the building (thanks to "build.sh") tell me

> I replaced libdpx.la and dpx.c in Makefile.in. Moreover, I added
> "my_test_lib_1.h" and "my_test_lib_2.h" next to  "my_test.c"  in
> Makefile.in.
> I also modified Makefile.am as indicated in "README".
> Could you help me again to fix this error?
