Sure I can tell you where to get the alpha release:
I guess (from looking at your email address) that
it isn't rocket science. ;)
The "linking hundreds of duplicate libraries" is another
feature of Libtool that is only turned on explicitly
in the alpha release. For some software it is required
(when linking static libs with convoluted dependencies)
so it was added to 1.4.2. You shouldn't have these problems
if you reconfigure the package to use the alpha Libtool.
