Hello,

Do you know when this new platform is scheduled to be officially
supported by libtool? Do you need an official tarball or just a custom one?

We tend to be careful with what version of libtool we use. The current
release scheme would prevent any libtool version bump before v1.9, which
won't happen before next spring. But 2.4.2.418 may be different from an
actual version bump.

I am CCing the devel list in case somebody has an opinion (you will need
to be subscribed to post there, so keep me in To:).

thanks
Brice
