Does it really matter?
The reason this package used libtool is that we work with a diverse set of
machines around here (NetBSD, Solaris, SGI, and probably others as time
goes by), and I'm trying to instill good programming/packaging practices.
libtool is much better than the alternatives.
Also, the package was installing lib version 1.0. Is there a particular
reason you bumped it to 1.1? I'd picked 1.0 to decouple the shared lib
numbering from the tar file & package numbering since I'm not 100% sure
that the tar file will get renumbered like a shared lib should.
