I'm attempting to rebuild libtool and binutils on Mac OS X 10.4.6 and

Try `ranlib --help' for more information.
ar: internal ranlib command failed
This looks like a bug in 'ar' to me.
I think it's yet another instance of the confusion between GNU libtool
and MacOS X's included libtool, which is a completely different
program. On a MacOS X system, /usr/bin/ranlib is a symlink to
/usr/bin/libtool, which has the following usage:
libtool -static -o output [ -sacLT ] [ - ] [ -arch_only
file... [-filelist listfile[,dirname]]
libtool -dynamic -o output [ -install_name name ] [
sion number ] [ -current_version number ] [ link editor flags ]
[ -v ]
[ -noall_load ] [ - ] [ -arch_only arch_type ] file...
ranlib [ -sactfLT ] [ - ] archive...
Chances are Daniel's overwritten the Apple libtool (and thus ranlib)
with GNU libtool. OS X users should take pains to avoid installing GNU
libtool into /usr/bin/, and maybe GNU libtool ought to make it more
difficult for them to do so...
