libtool, how should the version be parsed?

I was trying to build some package and it complained that libtool 1.4
was needed... looking at the version:

$ libtool --version
libtool (GNU libtool 1.3081 2009-02-17) 2.2.7a

Is it 1.3081 or 2.2.7a?

I see at that the latest stable is 2.2.6a, so I suppose the one
in Cygwin (1.7) is the bleeding edge.  Any trick/idea on how to use it
with packages that expect something sane as version.
