Where do you think the patches come from ? someone has to write them in
the first place. As far as OpenBSD is  concerned, that's me or
address@hidden, mainly.

Well, I have patches to handle this problem. But this is getting tedious,
because those patches are dirty. Because libtool support of OpenBSD is
not up-todate. Because there are always new versions, new snapshots of
libtool, which are incompatible with the previous one. And every time,
I get to reinvent the wheel, and dive into those dreadful autoconf macros
and huge shell-scripts.

And frankly, I'm a bit fed up of that.
