I'm attempting to rebuild libtool and binutils on Mac OS X 10.4.6 and
I'm running into the following issue:

/bin/sh ./libtool --tag=CC --mode=link gcc  -g -O2 -no-undefined  -o

libtool: link: rm -fr  libltdl/.libs/dlopen.a
libtool: link: ar cru libltdl/.libs/dlopen.a libltdl/loaders/.libs/dlopen.o
ranlib: unrecognized option `-q'
Try `ranlib --help' for more information.
ar: internal ranlib command failed

This looks like a bug in 'ar' to me.

I think it's yet another instance of the confusion between GNU libtool and MacOS X's included libtool, which is a completely different program. On a MacOS X system, /usr/bin/ranlib is a symlink to /usr/bin/libtool, which has the following usage:

libtool -static -o output [ -sacLT ] [ - ] [ -arch_only arch_type ]
       file...  [-filelist listfile[,dirname]]

libtool -dynamic -o output [ -install_name name ] [ -compatibility_ver- sion number ] [ -current_version number ] [ link editor flags ] [ -v ] [ -noall_load ] [ - ] [ -arch_only arch_type ] file... [-filelist

       ranlib [ -sactfLT ] [ - ] archive...

Chances are Daniel's overwritten the Apple libtool (and thus ranlib) with GNU libtool. OS X users should take pains to avoid installing GNU libtool into /usr/bin/, and maybe GNU libtool ought to make it more difficult for them to do so...
