GNU libtool is a generic library support script. Libtool hides the
complexity of using shared libraries behind a consistent, portable

This is a bugfix and feature enhancement update.

[[ compiled using gcc-4.3.4-3 ]]

* Updated to latest git master version (2010-09-02,
* libtool script supports linking with .la files that contain
  an '='-indicated sysroot
* Projects using libtool now support a new --with-sysroot=... option
* Largest cygwin patches have been merged upstream
* Remaining (old) patches:
  + allow runtime library flags (like -static-libgcc)
    - Yaakov Selkowitz "libtool: -{shared,static}-libgcc"
  + [cygwin|mingw] Create UAC manifest files (as modified)
* New patches:
  + Fix linking with -fstack-protector (Yaakov Selkowitz)
  + Fix order of PATH manipulation in cwrapper (reported by Jon Turney)
* Does not yet support LTO. There is an lto branch upstream, and it is
  slated to be merged in to the release branch before 2.2.12 (due RSN)
  I'll update again at that time.

Test results -- old tests:
All 122 tests passed
(2 tests were not run)

Test results -- new tests:
111 tests behaved as expected.
9 tests were skipped.

(no regressions from 2.2.7a-15)
