The problem with that, for us, is that the CVS server machine runs 
FreeBSD and has GNU libtool installed from the ports collection. The 
FreeBSD ports collection has a really old version of libtool (1.3.4), 
which is broken for many platforms. An option would be to install an 
autotoolset of the level that we require/like, say in /usr/local/gnu, 
and prepend its bin to the PATH for roll operations. That would give us 
a known autotoolset for releases/drops instead of what the RM happens 
to have on their machine.

Of course I don't know that those snapshots are rolled on the CVS 
box... I could be smoking crack.
