Remember that /usr/bin/libtool on Mac OS X is not the same as
/usr/bin/glibtool. For Mac OS X you should probably run GNU libtool's
configure with --program-prefix=g to ensure that there is no conflict.

I don't have a 10.3 system any longer, but, if I recall correctly
fprintf$LDBL128 is defined in libSystemStubs.a, but maybe that is only
on Mac OS X 10.3.9 (which added some things backward compatibility with

Looking at the test failures though, all I see are tests that fail
because your installed autoconf version is 2.58, so all is not as bad as
it looks. If you still wish to use libtool-2.2.6, you can first update
your autoconf and the tests should go more smoothly.

The crashes, are, "on purpose". Changing the crash reporter settings
with /Developer/Applications/Utilities/CrashReporterPrefs.app should
turn them off.

For patches, you could look at what the MacPorts or Fink packages do,
although as far as I am aware, neither support Mac OS X 10.3 any more.
