  I noticed that the output from 'file' has changed recently, e.g.:

/bin $ file -L /bin/ls.exe
/bin/ls.exe: MS-DOS executable PE  for MS Windows (console) Intel 80386 32-bit

  Maybe this will help?  Or perhaps something similar elsewhere.  Libtool uses
file in several ways to help it decide what it's going to build.


/bin $ diff -pu libtool.orig libtool
