I'm trying to build a libtoolized project in a Mac OS X SDK using the appropriate -isysroot/-syslibroot flags, but libtool seems to fail when there's a library installed in the SDK, say /home/MySDK/usr/local/lib, with dependencies in the .la file, such as dependency_libs='/usr/local/lib/',
which only exist in the SDK. The error I get from libtool is:

I don't remember if I fixed this yet. Are you creating your own SDKs?
Apple's SDKs do not contain any .la files.

Yes, I'm creating a custom SDK to overcome problems linking to my own libs in Xcode (which basically fails when the libs are outside syslibroot.) I couldn't find another sensible way.

Anyway, to get it working you will have to edit the generated libtool
script and change lines starting with 'sys_lib_search_path_spec=' so
that the assigned values have the SDK path prepended.

Thanks, will try. Another option that came to mind is just replacing the dependency in the .la with a -lfoo style, instead, for example "/usr/local/lib/" -> "-L /usr/local/lib -lintl". Would that be asking for trouble?
