That's a valid standpoint, however we do not ship binutils with SmartOS, so I 
need a source of at least as, ranlib and objcopy. I'd rather use stock binutils 
(well, wip/binutils so that I can leverage AES-NI in OpenSSL on our platform), 
than come up with a clumsy subset.

Right now libtool/Makefile.common suggests it's trying to overcome PATH based 
ld lookup in libtool, whereas it's doing exactly the contrary: it skips the 
-print-prog-name based logic in libtool, and forces it to do a PATH based
