On MacOS X 10.3.5 (Darwin 7.5.0), two tests fail:

Two tests failing seems to be exceedingly good for current development libtool. I see ten tests failing and something like 12 tests skipped for Solaris 9.

It is clear to me that while CVS libtool is significantly structurally improved, much of its portability has been lost, and it is more brittle. We need to make a major effort to re-qualify it on available platforms.

You cannot expect that a libtool beta tester uses an unreleased
(and presumably buggy) autoconf snapshot. (I don't want to destabilize my
entire system, I only wanted to test libtool!)

It is an interesting problem. CVS libtool depends on CVS Automake which depends on CVS Autoconf. It is a spiral which is very difficult to get out of.
