How to change a Makefile from building static library to shared library?


I have a library that it only offers Makefile for building static library. It built libxxx.a file. How do I in any way build a shared library? (either changin the Makefile or direct script or command to build shared library)

Makefile::AST - AST for (GNU) makefiles DESCRIPTION
The structure of this (GNU) makefile AST is designed based on GNU make's data base listing output produced by "--print-data-base". This AST library provides the following classes: Makefile::AST The primary class for ASTs. Provides interface for node adding and querying, such as "add_implicit_rule", "apply_implicit_rules", "add_explicit_rule", "apply_explicit_rules", "add_var", "add_auto_var", "get_var", as well as lots of other utility functions, like method "eval_var_value" for computing the ultimate values of makefile variables, method "enter_pad" and "leave_pad" for local variable's scoping pad. Makefile::AST::Rule::Base This is the base class for the rule nodes in the AST. It has properties like "normal_prereqs", "order_prereqs", "commands", and "colon". Makefile::AST::Rule This class represents the de-sugared form of simple rules and implicite rules after application. It inherits from Makefile::AST::Rule::Base, and adds new properties "target" and "other_targets". Makefile::AST::Rule::Implicit This class represents the implicit rule nodes in the AST. It inherits from Makefile::AST::Rule::Base, and adds new properties "targets", "match_anything", and "is_terminal". Makefile::AST::StemMatch This class encapsulates the file pattern matching (file names containing "%") and stem substitution algorithms. Makefile::AST::Variable It represents the makefile variable nodes in the AST, including "name", "value", "flavor", and "origin". Makefile::AST::Command Used to encapsulate information regarding makefile rule commands (e.g. command body, command modifiers "@", "-", "+", and etc.) as a whole. LIMITATIONS AND TODO
Adding support for other flavors' makes into this AST library should make a huge amount of sense. The most interesting candiate is Microsoft's NMAKE. CODE REPOSITORY
