The xdelta generation for libtool is severely broken!  Using xdelta

 xdelta delta libtool-1.5.4.tar.gz libtool-1.5.6.tar.gz libtool.xdelta

I get a file which is 7KByte big, not 2.4MByte!

We pass --pristine to turn off the gzip decompression, don't know why,
but we do :-)

You're deltafying the actual tar files, we're deltafying the tar.gz

We need to change this or stop doing xdeltas altogether. They are almost the same size as the distribution.
