Can you point to what makes it look like this, and which Libtool version?
Because I think that an lt-program* outside [._]libs/ would be a bug.
Are you hinting at this line?

      { file=\`ls -1dt \"\$progdir/\$program\" \"\$progdir/../\$program\" 
2>/dev/null | ${SED} 1q\`; \\

I think that's a leftover bug made unnecessary by the changes from
1999-02-22, but I haven't looked closely yet.  ;-)

Thanks, and a Happy New Year,
