I chose to use libtool for two specific reasons:

1) libtool is the generally recommended way of building non-static
libraries with automake.

2) Using libtool gives us interlibrary dependancies with the .la

The fact that perhaps any posix might be supported and there's
slightly easier bootstrapping is just a nice add-on.
