libtool relink problem

I encountered a problem with the libtool 1.4 and the building of the
latest GNOME stuff. The problem is described below.

Does anybody know where I can find the patch mentioned by Owen Taylor? Or
is it already fixed in CVS?

This is a libtool problem; it will affect anything using libtool-1.4.
Please take it up with the libtool people.  (Alexander Olivia said
there was some sort of patch for this floating around, but I don't
think had much time to work on libtool recently.)

For the Red Hat GTK+-1.3.x RPMS, we have a hack in the SRPM to remove
the relinking from the libtool used to build.
