Could you send a patch to the libtool-patches list (with `diff -u') that
changes instances of interix3 to

(in most cases in m4 files you will have to write
due to the M4 quoting) and report the verbose test failures?
Otherwise, I can post a patch this weekend, could you test it then?
Extra credits if you do it for CVS HEAD as well, and its new testsuite
(README knows how to use it).
