it's unrelated to the platform. the important part is, how a library is
linked (whether as a single binary with multiple objects, or as a
directory with one binary per object).
PdX tried to solve this by pushing a single solution down the throat of
each developer who had a library shipped with PdX.
some devs didn't like that and stayed with a solution that fit their
needs better.
leading to confused users who - depending on where they got the library
from - would need different options to use the library.

the only rule of thumb is to inspect the library folder, and if you see
many (or no) {dll|pd_darwin|pd_linux}s files you should use "-path", and
if there are only a very few (usually one(1)) with the name of the
library, then you should use "-lib".
