Note that our ardent libtool proponents don't care explaining
what is or what may be wrong, neither they care fixing obviously
libtool-related bugs themselves.
If libtool causes problems, it should be removed. It's a tool,
and its purpose should be serving people. It should simplify
maintainance rather than cause random breakage in rather critical
software such as PostgreSQL or Octave. We don't have drop-in
replacement for any of the two.
