When installing a package, pkgsrc sets LIBTOOL to "libtool" instead  
of its full path, even though 'make show-var VARNAME=LIBTOOL' shows  
the full path.  Because of this, "make install" fails if the root  
user does not have "libtool" available in its path (For example,  
graphics/MesaLib calls ${LIBTOOL} to install libraries at pre-install).

Is this intentional?  If so, why?
