MLB merge is done! Hurray!

Hello Libtoolers!

As soon as subversions stops refusing connections, I will commit to HEAD the 
changes I made as I merged the rest of MLB.  The patch is huge, due to the 
amount of code I have had to touch, so I won't post it here... please extract 
it from CVS if necessary.

Currently it passes all tests on my i686-pc-linux-gnu, and comparing the 
contents of the tags in the generated libtool with the equivalent from MLB 
there is only one difference (in the CXX tag):

  The merged version has `runpath_var=LD_RUN_PATH' (and consequently
  `variables_saved_for_relink' includes LD_RUN_PATH), whereas MLB has

I'm inclined to think this is a bug in MLB, but if anyone knows better please 
let me know.

One thing that worries me is that I am not sure that the patch correctly 
handles an absence of gcj and/or a c++ compiler.  The other big worry I have 
is that I have touched an awfully large amount of code to teach many of the 
macros to run in multiple contexts, so I may have made a mistake in some of 
the non-linux platforms.

Anyway, I would like to declare MLB officially dead, and reopen HEAD for 
development.  I would enormously appreciate any help with draining the patch 
queue (i.e. unapplied patches from the list) so that I can make a 1.4b alpha 
release in the near future.
