The problem is that there is *no* version of libtool available
that works out-of-the-box.  If we could tell people to just
download libtool-1.4.2 and use that, that'd be fine.  But, we can't
do that since no version of libtool released by GNU works on OS X.
So, I think we can be nice and provide a tarball that has a
working libtool.

I have no idea how JimJag built on Darwin since the 2.0.35 tarball
won't even compile here.  I used my fink'd libtool to get a good
libtool.  And, has Fred's special libtool that I
bet is similar to Pier's.  -- justin
