#995 closed enhancement (worksforme)

use "convenience libraries" to share .cc in multiple targets

Currently we compile some .cc files multiple times, once for a main
target (such as b10-auth), and in other cases for tests and
benchmarks. The additional compilation is simply redundant and
(though maybe relatively marginal) contribute to increasing the
already large build time of BIND 10.

I propose we use the "convenience library" feature of automake to avoid
the duplicate compilation. See this link for convenience libraries:

(At least in theory) this should be a beneficial (and mostly trivial)
change at no risk of regression.

Both b10-auth and b10-recurse should be able to benefit from this, and
there may be some others.
