Okay, it's reverted.  It was worth a shot.  =)

I believe at least libtool 1.4.  There are lots of reasons to require
1.4.2 (Mac OS X is only supported with 1.4.2).  This is just a developer
requirement not an end-user requirement, so I think we could be fairly
picky about our versions if we believe it'll give us a good value in
the long-run.

Well, everything libtool says is DSO isn't supported on AIX.  We're 
trying our best to prove them wrong.  My guess is that the dependency 
generation is turned off since they "know" that AIX has no dependency
support.  We will probably have to teach libtool about dependencies.

Can you post the errors you were seeing?  I don't have AIX, but I
can try doing research on it time permitting.  -- justin
