*sigh* ... actually, I just don't know why it did
work in 1.3.x and it must be left as is in 1.4 - well,
then again, libtool gained functionality...

btw, after a bit of trial-and-error, I am using now
a builddir outside the source-archive where the
original files are symlinked. That way any updates
to the files through the archive (from co-developments)
are directly reflected in the builddir, and all the
real-paths of directories do not contain a "~".

Hopefully, the "~" can be solved later on...

With the change from 1.3.5 to 1.4 
all project builds broke. It boiled
down to the project-path to have a
"~" somewhere in the middle, i.e.
some/project~0.1.3/dir which is
perfectly legal, but at some point
during mode=linking, the libtool
script will barf at "0.1.3/dir"
being nonexistent - it probably
has to do with libtool storing some
command-sequences using a IFS="~"
(delimiter instead of a IFS=";").

Note that the project-path is not
my choice but the one of the local
source-repository system, and that
it does not help to use symlinks to
circumvent the problem - libtool
seems to resolve names for relative
paths to the real-path, i.e. sth.
like -L.. will contain a "~" later.

Since earlier versions had allowed
the buildpath to contain "~", it is
probably possible to fix this issue,
but what to do before that? Is there
a way to get around the problem now?
