Looks reasonable.

Please post complete make output.  Please also post what configure
outputs.  If you know how to fix them, feel free to post a patch as

Both should not be necessary, since you have not (yet) changed the m4
files or or  But when that is the case,
running ./bootstrap will be the way to recreate the necessary output,
and you will have to install Automake (not necessarily version 1.9).

This is nothing to worry about per se.
(From a libtool point of view, Unicos/mk ought to be a really simple

Just post all compile errors so we can fix them.
When we're done with that, let's see how the Libtool testsuite fares,
  make check
will do that -- and
  make check VERBOSE=x TESTS='test1.test ...'
will allow you to selectively rerun the tests that failed with more
output.  Tests in libtool are grouped, so you might have to rerun them
in groups.

Also note that since 1.5.10 a few fixes have gone into branch-1-5 of
Libtool which fix spurious testsuite failures on static-only systems.
I'll point them out when they show up, they're harmless.
