Thinking about this more. It seems like a waste of time to continue to
patch old libtool.

I also have patches for BSD/OS support for libtool-1.4.2 which have
various differences to libtool-1.4. And I can provide the fixes for
libtool-1.5 instead.

Will the new libtool version 1.5 in pkgsrc use the original distfile or
will it be a custom NetBSD tarball (like now)?

If it will use  original distfile, should we consider importing libtool
version 1.5 to pkgsrc-wip?

Or even if we do use a custom distfile, maybe we should begin with it
(using original source) at pkgsrc-wip. So developed can be seen and used
by some.

Is there any expected date with libtool 1.5 will be ready for pkgsrc?
