[Rd] Package with multiple shared libraries

Dear R-devel members,

I would like to compile a package with two seperate shared libraries. For example, in a package 'foo', a file 'bar.so' built from a distinct set of source files should be installed in addition to the default 'foo.so' (or .dll on windows). Does anyone know about a way to achieve this without having a custom Makefile, e.g. via 'Makevars'?

Also, I'd be thankful for information on existing packages which make use of this or a similar customization.

Just in case anyone is interested in details: I have some C-code which is not intended to be loaded into R but into a SQLite database to which I connect via RSQLite. I would like to have these object in a seperate library.

Thanks and kind regards,
