My primary interest in all of this is to fully merge the Apple
Binutils/GDB sources into the FSF tree, which requires some changes to
libtool that are only in more recent versions of libtool/autoconf.
My secondary interest is that I seem to spend a lot of time hacking
Binutils/GDB makefiles, and I'd like that process to be as painless as
I'm in a moderate hurry for the gdb/binutils changes, mainly because
Apple needs to have some form of the changes to enable the FSF sources
to build properly on our platform, and I find the mental load of
maintaining the divergent sources to be a headache, particularly when
I'm in no particular hurry for the libiberty changes, since it doesn't
use libtool anyway and the current build setup works fine for Apple in
the short-term. I eventually hope to libtool-ize libiberty as well,
but that can certainly wait until an appropriate time in the GCC

By the time the issues are worked out for gdb/binutils and the switch
made there, gcc will hopefully have branched. Plus the gcc head is
more stable than the branch anyway, which is what I'd prefer be the
main copy for everyone else.
How much of a hurry are you in, anyway?
