What kind of operating system and hardware?
(Guessing FreeBSD 5.2.1?)

It's probably only that the `file' output for shared libs cannot be
recognized on your system.  You can read
  info '(libtool.info)Porting inter-library dependencies'
for a little bit of information on this, but the documentation is really
terse here.

Please print output of 
$ sed 1q ./libtool
$ ./libtool --config | egrep 'file_magic|deplibs_check_method|MAGIC'
$ /usr/bin/file /usr/lib/libc.so*

and some details about your system.
