This should fix it (patch for libtool HEAD, not likely to apply on
1.5.x, should not be too difficult to patch it "by hand" if you really
want to).

Sorry it took so long. I still have not tested on Mac OS X 10.1, I would
have to remove 10.2 and find the install media for 10.1 etc etc and I am
apparently too lazy to do that :)

I believe that the problem was that ${wl} was not set at the time that
this macro was run, so instead of the linker seeing the flag
-single_module, gcc saw it, warned, and did not pass it along to the linker.

The patch hardcodes -Wl, and logs to config.log.
