GNU libtool is a generic library support script. Libtool hides the
complexity of using shared libraries behind a consistent, portable

This is a bugfix and feature enhancement update.

[[ compiled using gcc-3.4.4-999 ]]

Unless there are serious issues with this package, it is likely to be
the last version of libtool released for cygwin-1.5.  This release
differs from the simultaneously-released libtool-2.2.7a-14 for
cygwin-1.7 in only trivial ways. 

* Updated to latest git master version (2009-06-30,
* Still has 72kB of cygwin-specific patches (review
  backlog upstream)

Test results -- old tests:
All 113 tests passed
2 tests were not run

Test results -- new tests:
ERROR: 80 tests were run,
4 failed (3 expected failures).
8 tests were skipped.

The lone unexpected failure
  73: installable libltdl 
appears to be a false alarm. The test claimed to be unable
to remove a particular directory because it wasn't empty --
but when checked later, it was empty. Could not reproduce.
