In the GNU Serveez, i see:

I recommend eliminating use of this macro. Whatever purpose it was intending to solve surely no longer exists.

I use Solaris for development and have never needed anything similar to what this macro is doing. It seems likely that the developer of the macro was solving some issue with his own compiler installation.

Libtool 1.4.2 was released in 2002.  That is eons in libtool time.
