Well, the patch I sent is actually completely different from that of
http://bugs.debian.org/57087!  I don't know where I got my patch from.

I discovered that the latter patch doesn't originate from Sam Couter
after all.  I found it posted to bug-libtool in August 2001


apparently from some work by Redhat.  This patch was also discussed on
Redhat's bugzilla


and on libtool-patches in July 2002 


No doubt there are other references.  

The patch has not been applied to CVS.  Is there some objection to it?

Second, I found that the test case I sent will succeed (erroneously)
because I placed it badly in the sequence of TESTs.  Here is an update
of the test case.  With unpatched CVS libtool, the test fails (except
when it follws depmod-static.test).  With the patch from redhat,
it works.
