FWIW, Apple appears to configure GNU libtool using --program-prefix=g so
it actually installs to glibtool.

As for the Eric's question about debug bloat, I'd guess it has something
to do with Apple moving from stabs to dwarf -- but that default switched
back in XCode 2.4.  Look for preprocessor macros like SDB_DEBUGGING_INFO,
DWARF2_DEBUGGING_INFO, and DEBUG_SYMS_TEXT.  But I'm totally guessing.  As
Andreas said, this belongs on an Apple-specific list.
