Again, you're blaming the tool for the complexity of the underlying problem.
But, isn't this tool supposed to take care of the underlying complexity? So, haven't you completely invalidated your argument for it? It's supposed to make the task of creating libraries similar across dissimilar systems yet by your own description it does not.
I don't remember all the details now since it's been a while, but back when we were trying to port KDE 3.x to native Qt on the Mac libtool was a constant source of problems.
