The reason was that libtool had already diverged significantly from
what we had been using, and the libtool branch from which I had been
doing imports into gcc and src were regarded as dead by other libtool
folks.  I felt importing libtool mainline was inappropriate for GCC
3.0, and then, when the same problems were reported against GCC
mainline, I still hadn't had time to test it against libtool mainline,
so I went ahead and just merged the known-to-work files from GCC 3.0,
but failed to apply the same patch in src.  Now Jeff ran into the same
problem using src's top level, so I suggested him to just merge these

I shall look into doing a proper merge from libtool, but I haven't had
time to even open my libtool e-mail folders in the past few months :-(
