One nice thing about Autotest is that it helps exactly with this.

Which failed? Either
$ less testsuite.log

$ ls testsuite.dir

tells you (the directories of the failed tests are still present).  Then,

$ less testsuite.dir/NUMBER/testsuite.log

has the error again, and all the other files to reproduce it should be
present, too.  (Libtool's suite might need tweaking for this to work

I'm kind of unsure whether Libtool would be the right place for a bunch
of linker-specific curiosities similarly to Autoconf's `Limitations of
Usual Tools'.  In any way, it might not hurt to record the information
somewhere (and, what's more, your cut'n'pasting of the error will allow
this to be picked up by search engines).
