With current stable Cygwin, is this only a cosmetic improvement of

As explained in my replies to Peter [1][2], in my uses of AC_PROG_NM,
when 'nm' is not detected, the library that is built is not namespace
clean: its exported symbols are likely to collide with those of other

Bruno, you have still not confirmed if you are fixing a bug or if you
are fixing a cosmetic problem. If NM is not set in libtool-git-matser,
then there is a general problem that should be fixed. If NM is set in
libtool-git-master, then your proposed patch is only cosmetic.

In any of those cases, I think the patch is questionable.
