Thats not quite correct, autotools default configuration generates both 
a static and a dll, by default,
programs would get linked to the static one, but IIRC the option to link 
against the dll is on the ode-config
script (if you want to link against the static do -lode as usual, if you 
want shared do -lode.so or -lode.dll as apropiate).
