Removed libtool-patches since there was no attached patch ...

My use case is when users (or myself) want to run the
pango/pango-view/pango-view binary, by hand.  I can put a pango-view.sh
by its side, but users won't run it.

We went through this all two years ago :).

I seem to have slept several times since then.

I see the value and my own project can make use of it. Did you send a patch?

For my own application, I also need to 'cd' to a different directory in order to run each test since my application uses a non-recursive build and Automake does not make much provision for that when running the tests other than to tell me where the top source directory is. So I have all of my test scripts source this ugly junk:

SRCDIR=`dirname $0`
SRCDIR=`cd $SRCDIR && pwd`
TOPSRCDIR=`cd $srcdir && pwd`
cd tests || exit 1

However, I see that the environment variables and the requirements for tests are different but that the tests need the environment variables.
