The patch is functionally correct, but incomplete. It properly sets the
pic-mode default in ltoptions.m4, but doesn't set the help text to
display that default (it's currently hard-coded to display "use both").
This can be done the same way as _LT_ENABLE_SHARED. I wish I had time to
put a complete patch together, but I'm under pressure at work right now
and don't have time to determine a correct patch for the code in git --
it's different than my code and it's different from the one the patch
was originally written for. The git head contains additional code in
ltoptions.m4 to handle multi-package specifications in the --with-pic
flag and I haven't had time to sort out how it works yet.

I'm just glad you're aware of the issue and I'm in no hurry for a fix
please do it when you get to it, or I'll get one to you as soon as the
pressure here at work lets up a bit. :)
