So the short version here is: Works As Intended. We do go to some length
to make sure that libtool.m4 is the prestine upstream version, so that
if you build a package for redistribution, it is not polluted with any
local package and you get the same result as on other systems. As a side
effect, this means that the fixes for various platforms in pkgsrc are
also not included. While I do regular runs to upstream them, it is
always a game of cat and mouse. It doesn't help that new libtool
versions tend to add needs for new patches...
