The solution is: Don't use libraries at all, where not necessary! I
lined out a way to achieve this in my first mail: use scons. That way,
you don't get ext13.pd_linux, but all externals, that would be bundled
into the ext13 library, became single externals instead. This way you
don't need to use "-lib ext13" at all, while users would still have
all ext13 objects available.

This works for most libraries except a few like iemmatrix or bigger
ones like Gem. There are only about half a dozen libraries, which
cannot be build (resonably) as single externals.
