having global_symbol_pipe="" will certainly cause that error as would an
empty \$NM \$libobjs \$convenience .
On my NetBSD-1.6.2/alpha with libtool-base-1.5.6nb1
# Take the output of nm and produce a listing of raw symbols and C names.
global_symbol_pipe="sed -n -e 's/^.*[ ]\\([ABCDGIRSTW][ABCDGIRSTW]*\\)[ ][ ]*\\(\\)\\([_A-Za-z][_A-Za-z0-9]*\\)\$/\\1
I'd take a close look at the libtool-base build log and see what failed.
