 It works, sort off, but it has some bugs, most importatnly, it will
 try to link in various twice under some conditions (happen if you use
 conveniance libs). Otherwise it works nicely.

I have found that is caused by

    whole_archive_flag_spec="-all_load \$convenience"

replace it with



this works in this case, but it breaks other things, sadly.... it ain't that easy. Just try a "make check" with and without this change, and you'll see.

Furthermore, there is at least one other quoting issue that I recently reported, though nobody commented on it, and I am afraid I do not know enough about the internals of libtool to fix it (and fix it in a fashion that doesn't break the rest of the world).

Sad but ture: right now I cannot reliably use libtool 1.4.x on darwin for all purposes.
