We are talking about released SW rsp. to be released SW here.

The current situation is: libtool and autoreconf do not interact
together, rendering autoreconf entirely useless and unreliable in total
in many situations, no matter if libtool is the culprit or not.

Pointing users to cvs versions is acceptable as long a tool is in
development, however once a tool is release, this situation changes.
Read: Users will yell at autoconf, because _it_ can't deal with released
versions of libtool.

In my opinion it is prohibitive and stupid not to have a libtool release
that can properly interact with autoconf.
