In which case, you are saying that libtool is completely broken and
unusable for creating Debian packages? You can't have both set the
same, the package has to be created from the build directory, and it
gets installed in the correct spot when the package gets installed.

I imagine it will be much the same for creating RPMs, too, but I have
never done that myself.

Also, why did this work with libtool 1.4, but then suddenly stop
