Oh boy. Yeah, I would imagine so.  The gcc-tools-* stuff was added to 
support Dave Korn's needs when building the cygwin compilers, and since 
HE didn't need libtool, I didn't package it.

I think there was some problem with trying to use full-up 'autoreconf' 
on the gcc tree, so Dave stuck with manually running the individual 
tools as needed, but I'm not sure about that.

Let's see what suggestions Dave has.

Again, I *think* you can suppress this; I'll check tomorrow.
