Oh, I want to apologise for writing this sentence.

Is this easy to do? I guess I have to read libtools documentations.

There is a more recent version  But it 
also has the same problems, although it is from 2003. 

I would like to omit this package, but KDE somehow depends on it and their 
libtool finds /usr/lib/, if I do not provide my own version.  
But I have to prevent that any package uses /usr/lib/
