libtool doesn't allow "make DESTDIR=`pwd`/foo install" anymore.

If you build a package with --prefix=/usr and that package has
interdependencies among it's shared libraries (like guile and
heimdal), libtool will no longer allow you to install to a temporary
directory via

  make DESTDIR=`pwd`/foo install

libtool 1.4 allowed this, but as of at least 1.4.2, it doesn't.  This
makes it very difficult, if not impossible to package programs using
libtool for systems like debian that require creating a local install
from which the package is generated.

See, bugs 57087 and 98342.

I believe this may have been discussed here at some point in the past,
but I just wanted to check and make sure that the current developers
were still aware of the problem, and if so, see if there were plans to
fix it.

I also wanted to see if anyone had suggestions for a fix, even a
temporary one.  There's a patch in the debian package that seems to
fix the problem for some people, but still doesn't work for other
package like guile and heimdal.
