No, just that by modifying the generated libtool that it worked fine
and that certain lines in libtool.m4 are extremely similar (it did not
work fine before without a "main" function in the dll).

So, what I modified libtool.m4 and tried to use the new builds to make
a similar libtool but so far they have not been successful although it
is possible that the error is due to my not running "aclocal" after
modifying libtool.m4 - which I did a little while ago and libtool is in
the "make check" phase at this moment.

Provided that the changes are correctly propagated to the generated
libtool and the tests correctly work, I shall then submit a patch if
there are no objections.

Thank you,
