libtool 1.5.23a is an alpha release, so this problem has never made it
out into the wild, thanks to your bug report.  Personally, I dont
think the sed expression in the APR needs to change -- it could be
more permissive, but I pretty sure that we wont be seeing libtool emit
a leading blank line for a very long time -- next time it will be some
other minor unintentional change, and its hard to predict what it will

Did you end up with libtool 1.5.23a by doing a standard cygwin
install, or did you specifically select that version?

If it was automagically selected for you, then my guess is that
another cygwin package you installed depended on that alpha release of
libtool, and I would recommend that you discuss this with the cygwin

If you specifically selected version 1.5.23a, consider rolling back to 1.5.22

Alternatively, you could "fix" the current alpha version of libtool
you have installed: edit /usr/bin/libtool and remove the blank line
(around line 838) that caused this glitch.
