No, but they are moderated once (for each email address they use).

I applied changes to branch-1-5 and HEAD (to use the range [3-9] instead
of 3).  Please wait a day, grab the nightly tarballs for both branches
(so you don't need to bootstrap), configure, make.  URLs are listed on
the GNU Libtool web page.  With HEAD, please run
  make -k check

so that the new testsuite (the check-local part) is also run.  If it has
failures, please send tests/testsuite.log.  Please reply to the
libtool-patches list.  Thanks.

For the mdemo-dryrun failure, please run this
  make check VERBOSE=yes TESTS="tests/mdemo-conf.test  \
    tests/mdemo-make.test tests/mdemo-exec.test tests/mdemo-inst.test \
    tests/mdemo-unst.test tests/mdemo-dryrun.test"

and show the contents of the files

If the failure "don't know how to build" persists with the
nightly tarballs, we need to look into that.  Which make version is

I'll post the patches separately (to libtool-patches only).

OK, thanks.  I won't go to change this at the moment, though.
(There are several more systems where this optimization can be
done eventually.)
