That is just the problem it doesn't get what is needed, but only shows the obsolete (from what you say) versions as the newest.
I even tried experimental to try to find newer libtool version, but none show up.
Version1.5b or whatever was presented as the newest version by setup.
There was no intentional _obsolete gets on my part.
I solved the problem by hand getting the new vesion and untarring it in the appropriate location, but that shouldn't have to be done.
I believe it is a setup related problem, either hints or ini file data.
