When libtool installs things we often see that banner that goes by saying
"to complete this installation you need to run libtool --finish $prefix/lib"
Which most people tend to ignore, because its a no-op on Linux.  Maybe it is
actually required but not performed on AIX?

Just a thought from someone who doesn't know much about libtool.
