FWIW I'm another build system maintainer who sees email here. We
currently have 12 patches against libtool:

Some of these are inappropriate for upstream, one or two may have been
merged into libtool, some others may highlight issues, particularly
around the sysroot support.

Unfortunately whilst I have the best intentions (and am still on the
list), I haven't found the time to look into the issues as yet and
figure out if we could get some into a form that they'd be accepted
