   The following changes handle two problems with building libbfd on 8+3
   (a.k.a. DOS) filesystems.  They get in the way when building with
   DJGPP tools.

   I found this while building the latest snapshot of GDB.

	   * aclocal.m4 (AC_SYS_NM_PARSE): Use mconftest.$objext, not
	   conftestm.$objext, since the latter overwrites conftest.$objext on
	   8+3 filesystems.

aclocal.m4 is a generated file, so patching it has no long term
effect.  This particular macro comes from libtool.  This should be
fixed in libtool, not in the binutils.

Actually, I set that that macro is no longer in libtool 1.3, so really
what we need to do is upgrade to a newer version of libtool.
