It has a tiny bit of rusty amigaos/m68k support, but cf. this comment in

      # Samuel A. Falvo II <address@hidden> reports
      # that the semantics of dynamic libraries on AmigaOS, at least up
      # to version 4, is to share data among multiple programs linked
      # with the same dynamic library.  Since this doesn't match the
      # behavior of shared libraries on other platforms, we can't use
      # them.
      _LT_TAGVAR(ld_shlibs, $1)=no

Check out CVS HEAD Libtool, or at least a nightly tarball of the CVS
version, search for all occurrences of amiga and PORTME.

Learn in README/README.alpha how to run the testsuites, run them
verbosely.  Post output, questions, proposed patches to the
libtool-patches list.  Post pointers to good documentation about the
system.  The more info you provide, the more we may be able to help.
