libtool now creates worldwritable .libs, and it is not too wise as for me.

Without .libs being writable, the following fails (in packages which,
like gettext, build two shared libraries, one depending on the other):

   $ ./configure
   $ make
   $ su -p bin

Well, I typed here $ su - oracle

   bin$ make install

And here I used
     oracle$ make install DESTDIR=/opt/oracle/tmp
and gettext package was installed just fine.
make install does not require write access to compiled sources at all.

BTW, what do you think about to use docdir = $(datadir)/doc/
insted of docdir = $(prefix)/doc in doc/Makefile.am.
This will make gettext more configurable and it folows modern standarts.
