In regards of libtool bug #13920 and debian bug #702737 I kindly ask you to update the documentation of libtool in aspect of link_all_deplibs, with something like the text below. I consider this as essential, as it would have saved me quite some (from my free) time investigating why the linking on Debian works differently/not according to the documentation. A proper documentation of link_all_deplibs on different systems, will safe the time of other developers investigating the same issue.
