That sounds great, but that system seems to be set up to patch only
ltmain.sh, and the code that needs patching isn't there.

The change needs to be in aclocal/libtool.m4  but I can't patch that and
then propagate the change to configure, because AUTORECONF doesn't work
for that package. (Maybe it would work for other packages, but I suspect
there would be problems updating a single file on it's own.)

I suppose I could try auto-patching configure and/or configure.in (or
.ac) along the same lines as ltmain.sh... what do you think?
