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-11 for
cygwin-1.7 in only trivial ways.
CHANGES SINCE 2.2.7a-1
* Removed patches derived from the msvc branch (these are not
ready for prime time)
* Added two patches from Yaakov Selkowitz:
- Allow libltdl to properly detect that cygwin applications
can dlopen(self) under certain circumstances
- Make -export-dynamic actually work
- gcc4 compatibility
Test results -- old tests:
All 113 tests passed
2 tests were not run
Test results -- new tests:
78 tests behaved as expected.
8 tests were skipped.
(no regressions from 2.2.7a-1)
