I guess you're talking about libtool--devo--1.0--patch-92, right?

It is very "belt and braces".  Not only have I fixed the obvious cases
of nested escaped double quotes in libtool.m4, but I've added the new
KSH_VERSION toting AS_SHELL_SANITIZE expansion to (and hence
the generated libtool script) and  There are other nested
escaped double quotes in libtool.m4 that I can't remove simply though,
hence the note about bootstrapping with CVS autoconf...

The quote removal you reference above is probably what fixes your
immediate problem, but I guess the new AS_SHELL_SANITIZE is triggering
something else. :-(

If you revert my patch, or fetch the prepatch revision from my arch
mirror, and bootstrap with HEAD autoconf, does the new AS_SHELL_SANITIZE
from autoconf prevent the crash when setting output_verbose_link_cmd?
