I floated an idea on how to get around that: Adjust the libtool invocation
command (as determined in libtool.m4) to be "libtool --bindir=$(bindir)" (or
perhaps with appropriate quoting). The idea being that when used from an
autoconf-based makefile (is it even possible to do otherwise, now there is
no ltconfig?), the make variable bindir is passed on to libtool. Kludgy,
yes, but better than ../bin. Of course, libtool would need to detect an
invalid bindir and fall back on ../bin. I haven't fully worked this through
yet, though, as I've just started university, so am a bit busy, and to top
it off, my hard drive is making loud clicking noises and bluescreening my
laptop from time to time.
