Reread my mail.  I said that I have patches for that, just not looked at
them yet, partly because they mix several issues.  They are from NetBSD's
Nick Hudson and for KDE 2.2.  I also laid out the general solution, which
doesn't involve any libtool hacking.  Patches implementing that solution
for KDE 3 are welcome if you don't want to wait for me doing them.

Huh?  I updated KDE's libtool from libtool CVS just once in the last
months (must be more than a year even), just before KDE 3 some weeks ago.
Not exactly frequent.  And as said, for that specific problem (linking
against modules) no libtool work is involved.  Just changing some's and possibly some small source changes.

The tone of your mail suggests that, yes.
