I'm using libtool-2.2.10 right now.

I don't understand, is it breaking in Makefiles that you wrote? I don't
know of anything in {autoconf,automake,libtool} that would use $ECHO
this way.

I think it is a namespace problem. What business does libtool have setting vars like ECHO, MV, etc.

If libtool had not unconditionally set ECHO to something other than 'echo', David's Makefiles would have continued to work when he moved from libtool-1.5.x to libtool-2.x.
