I mention this issue on the libtool list every now and then,
but I don't think anyone quite has a handle on the cause.
I would guess that most people don't have this problem, or
the claim that it works wouldn't be made.  The simplest hackaround
is, as you suggested, interrupt the build after autoopts is done,
cd into $top_builddir/autoopts and ``make install''.  Ugly.

You were using an I32LPx platform.  Turned out to be several bugs.
I'm not 100% sure it's been rigorously tested yet.  Your feedback on
5.5.3 would be appreciated.  :-)
