 Dear libtool maintainers,

 Is there a possibility for a new libtool release in the foreseeable future?

 In buildroot, we build all autotools (including libtool) as part of the
cross-compilation process. We recently had to add a libtool patch for
MIPS n64 support, which is annoying because it means we have to re-run
automake etc. to update the autools-generated scripts in libtool.
However, our normal autotools support doesn't work because that creates a
circular dependency. So we have to add a few hacks in the libtool build
steps to make things work.

 A release of libtool would help a lot because then we don't need to
carry patches and we don't need to generate configure etc.

 Thank you,
