It appears as others have pointed out that the fix is not so simple as 
the patch I submitted and my apologies for assuming so.  Again as 
others have pointed out it seems like this might in fact, be a libtool 

Has anything else been done with this issue since?  Is there a libtool 
person out there who might shed some light on the situation?

I suppose one possible solution would be a per-OS PLIST but this might 
be more of a workaround than anything and it would have to be known 
which platforms produce which filename.  Perhaps it could be as simple 
as "if (platform) else default" but that's bordering on ugly and 
error-prone.  Perhaps better than broken though?
