Hi Charles,

I encountered the same error message when building software within
my MinGW/MSYS cross-compilation environment.  I wasn't able to trace
down the problem in so I decided to hack libtool from
outside.  All problems went away after I've appended the following
commands to my build script:

        list=`awk '{print $4}' $files | grep '\.la$'`
        for i in $list ; do
            sed -e "s|^dependency_libs=.*|dependency_libs=''|" -e 
"s|$destdir||g" $i > $i~
            if cmp $i $i~ > /dev/null 2>&1 ; then
                rm -f $i~
                rm -f $i
                mv $i~ $i

$files points to a file containing all the files installed by a
package.  $destdir points to the directory of the staging area.

I know that I loose all dependency information but I don't care
about it (they were wrong anyway).
