This is not constructive.

You used this list to ask for help finding a problem in your environment
that is preventing you from building libtool.

If you cannot at least show some gratitude to the people who's free time
you have taken as they respond to your requests, at the very least you
should take your flames off list.  Preferably, keep your flames to yourself
entirely, or you'll continue to undermine your own credibility and will
find it harder to get help in future.

I have access to a Solaris 8 machine, and I am trying to reproduce your
report.  If you are patient and polite in the mean time, I will report my
findings back here when I'm done.
