This is an old bug by now, but the reports I've seen do not seem to
get at all of it.

libtool.m4:LT_INIT says LIBTOOL='$(SHELL) $(top_builddir)/libtool'.
Gnu Make exports SHELL=/bin/sh.  Maybe other Makes too, I do not know.

Any advise as to what to do (other than staying with libtool 1.5)?
For now I use the simplest fix, removing $(SHELL).  Or should
Makefile.in be using something else than @address@hidden


Thanks for the report.

Removing $(SHELL) from LIBTOOL makes sense to me, I don't know if it will cause problems on windows though?

If it's a problem, we can AC_SUBST(LT_SHELL) and use that (which will cause problems for people not using automake, like yourself).
