Hi all -

In December I had brought up the idea of updating the snapshot of
Libtool 2 that we use for building the v1.2 branch to a more recent
snapshot. The group seemed to think this was a good idea and I was
going to do it, then got sidetracked working around a bug in their
support for dylib (OS X's shared libraries). I committed a
workaround to the trunk today for the bug (as well as sending one of
the LIbtool developers a patch to libtool that resolves the issue).

Once I hear back from Ralf (the LT developer), I'd like to finally do
the LT update for our v1.2 tarballs. The advantage to us is slightly
faster builds, fixed convenience library dependencies (no more having
to set LIBS=/usr/lib64), and more bug fixes.

Does this still sound agreeable to everyone?
