After digging around the build system for some time, it looks to me like a module (e.g. dune-common) declares the fact that it exports the library libdunecommon by adding "-ldunecommon" to dune-common.pc.in. That isn't exactly intuitive (or really documented... ;-) ).
After 2.4 (and with autotools out of the way), we should handle this in a more explicit way. This bug is mostly a reminder for discussing this new way. Maybe by handling it in dune_add_library (and adding a flag to that macro to be able to not auto-export problematic libraries like Alberta)?
