Is it? If so, then I would like to know why (config.log outputs for
both would be nice). Could have been an Autoconf update instead.
Asking because I don't think the bug was consciously fixed in Libtool;
only a test was added to expose the issue. I'll put it on my list of
things to look at.

FWIW, a patch applied today fixes a regression introduced on 2007-05-08
and reported by Brian.

Cheers,
