So, after you've done a builds what does libhandle/.libs contain?
it shoul dlook something lik ethis:

$ ls -l libhandle/.libs/ total 180
-rw-r--r-- 1 dave dave 39416 May 23 08:50 handle.o
-rw-r--r-- 1 dave dave 21936 May 23 08:50 jdm.o
-rw-r--r-- 1 dave dave 61834 May 23 08:50 libhandle.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 dave dave    15 May 23 08:50 libhandle.la -> ../libhandle.la
-rw-r--r-- 1 dave dave   938 May 23 08:50 libhandle.lai
lrwxrwxrwx 1 dave dave    18 May 23 08:50 libhandle.so -> libhandle.so.1.0.3
lrwxrwxrwx 1 dave dave    18 May 23 08:50 libhandle.so.1 -> libhandle.so.1.0.3
-rwxr-xr-x 1 dave dave 45667 May 23 08:50 libhandle.so.1.0.3

And the libhandle.lai should contain:

$ cat libhandle/.libs/libhandle.lai
libhandle.la - a libtool library file
# Generated by libtool (GNU libtool) 2.4.2 Debian-2.4.2-1.1
# Please DO NOT delete this file!
# It is necessary for linking the library.

# The name that we can dlopen(3).

# Names of this library.
library_names='libhandle.so.1.0.3 libhandle.so.1 libhandle.so'

# The name of the static archive.

# Linker flags that can not go in dependency_libs.

# Libraries that this one depends upon.

# Names of additional weak libraries provided by this library

# Version information for libhandle.

# Is this an already installed library?

# Should we warn about portability when linking against -modules?

# Files to dlopen/dlpreopen

# Directory that this library needs to be installed in:

See $library_names? That should be all the names that are created,
and there are three. The are set up via 'install-sh -T so_????'

So, look at the install rules being run:

> cd ../libhandle/.libs;


> ../../install-sh -o root -g root -m 755 -d /lib64;

Setting owner/perms on /lib64.

> ../../install-sh -o root -g root -m 755 -T so_dot_version libhandle.lai 
> /lib64;

"-T so_dot_version" is supposed to copy libhandle.so.1.0.3 to
/lib64/libhandle.so.1.0.3. i.e. install the current library.

> ../../install-sh -o root -g root -T so_dot_current libhandle.lai /lib64

That's supposed to set up the /lib64/libhandle.so.1 link back to

And that's it. So, what's missing? 

Right - there's nothing that sets up /lib64/libhandle.so i.e.
this is missing:

../../install-sh -o root -g root -T so_base libhandle.lai /lib64

which would set up the /lib64/libhandle.so link to
