libtool problems in pango and gtk

The latest versions of pango and gtk libraries contain the following
version of libtool.  

libtool --version
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.4.2 (1.922.2.53 2001/09/11 03:18:52)

I suspect this problem will slowly propagate to other libraries we
install in the future which use the newer version of libtool.  Older
versions of these libraries contained libtool version:

libtool --version
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.3.4 (1.385.2.196 1999/12/07 21:47:57)

The problem I'm seeing is with regards to version 1.4.2.  In our
build environment, we build across multiple platforms with PREFIX
being set to the ultimate location where the toolset will be
installed.  But during the build stage, toolsets are installed in a
temporary location where they are then tarred and shipped
and unpacked (into the ultimate destination described by PREFIX) on
the machine they will ultimately reside.

With version 1.4.2 of libtool being used on pango and gtk, I receive
the following error from libtool during the "make install":

/bin/sh ../libtool  --mode=install /opt/exp/gnu/bin/install -c
libtool: install: error: cannot install `libpangox-1.0.la' to a
directory not ending in /opt/exp/gnu/lib

In looking over the libtool documentation it wasn't apparent that
there is a way to install libraries into a temporary location.  Why
was this option turned off and is there a way within the current
version of libtool to do such an installation?
