I think AIX can be handled with the "use libtool-1.4.2" approach.
That seems okay.  I believe a lot of the differences between 1.3.5
and 1.4.2 are because of AIX.  =)  So, I don't think it's a simple
patch to 1.3.5 on icarus, but Jeff would know...

For Darwin (OS X), there isn't any GNU version of libtool that works.
Asking the user to use libtool-1.4.2 with XYZ patch or patch their
Apple-provided libtool is beyond where I feel comfortable asking
our users to do for releases.  

The tarball is there.  It works here on OS X.  Do whatever you
want with it.  I don't use releases anyway.  =)  -- justin
