In released non-patched Libtool, there is no scenario or system in which
link_all_deplibs is set to `no'.  I think everybody pretty much agrees
that the current implementation of link_all_deplibs in libtool is not
very smart and leads to problems (as you had to find out the hard way).
That is one reason I started writing the deplibs RFC: To get rid of
link_all_deplibs and replace it with something sensible.

What was your question again?  Who patched your Libtool?
