Okay.  Keep us posted.

There is one patch against libtool for the benefit of Darwin, that I
have had to rejected because it causes regressions for most other
platforms.  You should be able to find the thread in the list archives.

Also there is a long standing problem with the way zsh echo handles
backslashes that I haven't had the time to look into.  Fixing this
would make life for libtool on darwin a whole lot easier...
