Ok, thats what I was afraid of.  "AC_PREREQ(2.13)" is referenced
several places over the libtool-1.4.3 code.  I'm now thinking this
isn't a libtool bug necessarily, but a change made by autoconf that
made new ./configure scripts not operate with old ./configure scripts.
Specifically, the new ./configure scripts (generated by newer
autoconfs) cannot call old ./configure scripts with VAR=VALUE

Do you believe that is what is really happening here?  Then, I should
submit the bug to the autoconf bug list.
