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-11 for
cygwin-1.7 in only trivial ways. 

* 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)
