bugs in version 1.42

Dear libtool'ers,

  while using the current version 1.4.2 of libtool I encountered the
following problems:

On a Darwin 1.4 (MacOSX 10.0, bash) --
  I had to --disable-shared for a complete build.
  This is due to the extra convenience libraries on the final link command
  I got it working with the floowing patch, but do not know if it would be
  a general solution:

On x86-pc-mingw32 (Win95, Cygwin bash) --
  The build process is generally ok, but it failed to `make install' on a
  binary using a shared library (DLL) also included in the built package.
  This is due to the creation of a wrapper script for `program' in
  First of all the Makefile dependency is never fulfilled because
  `program' differs from `program.exe', but it seems necessary because
  Win95 could "think" `program.exe' is a real EXE.
  Second Makefile will not install the `program.exe' because it `test -f
  program.exe' before running `libtool --mode=install ...'.
  I really do not know how to fix this behaviour...  Maybe also Automake
  may be involved?

If somebody is willingly to fix these bugs I would really appreciate.
Also I could recheck probable changes if supplied.  If you need more
information please tell me.

Thanks in advance,
