libtool isn't so bad except for one thing, which makes it unusable. No support for
cross-compilation. It's so utterly lame that every part of the GNU build environment
(binutils, gcc, autoconf, automake) is very cognizant of cross-compilation and works very,
very hard to make setting it up and using it as simple as possible... except libtool.
Whenever I see a package come through that uses libtool I absolutely cringe because I know it
will be a huge PITA.
