Checking against 1.4.2 would be a good-thing(TM) indeed, but doesn't
guarantee that on certain platforms (such as darwin, where the mainstream
libtool port doesn't work) this will not break things again...

We've been playing the libtool game since I started building 2.0. At one
point or another, it broke things (I remember AIX as well), and as far as I
know, noone has ever been able to get a patch incorporated into the main
tree (I mean, removing a couple of "" is not a big deal, right?)...

We can't keep libtool on our CVS as it's GPLed, let's just keep it off
somewhere, apply the patches _we_ need, and keep our machines updated with
_our_ version which works _for_us_... Right?

If my ex-girlfriend decides to give me back my Cube, I might be able to keep
it as an Apache Server for development and Testing on MacOS/X, since it
seems that moof is completely unmaintained...
