  1. Yes, libtool is definitely demon spawn. It’s barely adequate with C on Linux. With anything else or on any other platform, it really sucks. 🙁 There’s got to be a better way. :-/

  2. Actually, libtool is a *lot* more useful on other platforms. It’s frustratingly annoying on Linux because it makes things a billion times more complicated than they have to be. Actually having a sane linker/compiler combo make libtool fairly obsolete.

    Try to build shared libraries both with and without libtool on HPUX or something and you come to appreciate what libtool was created for. I just wish someone would write a shim replacement that’s simple and useful on Linux without doing all the random weird-ass crap libtool does for bizarre platforms.
