Hello Mike,

Please post patches to the libtool-patches list in the future, thanks.

I have no problem with this, other than: the fact that it may create an
incompatible switch-over point for gentoo users, and the unwary may be
expecting for her libraries, built on gentoo, could be usable on other
(gasp!) FreeBSD (-like) systems, and also that GNU/FreeBSD distributions
other than gentoo (if there are any) should not be discriminated
against.  At least with GNU/Linux, the vendor field is completely useless
-- what about spin-offs of Gentoo for example, what do they use?

What do the others think?
