Dear Gary,

thanks for libtool-2.4.6!

I discovered some files in that IMO don't belong there. The filenames start with "._" (just do a 'find . -name "._*"') and seem to contain dropbox meta data.

The Libtool Team is pleased to announce the release of libtool 2.4.6.

GNU Libtool hides the complexity of using shared libraries behind a
consistent, portable interface. GNU Libtool ships with GNU libltdl, which
hides the complexity of loading dynamic runtime libraries (modules)
behind a consistent, portable interface.

This is a bugfix release, and a recommended upgrade for all users.  Most
importantly, it regains most of the speed of 2.4.2 by correcting one of
two known regressions that were causing noticable slow-down when building
projects with many source files.

Here are the compressed sources:   (1.7MB)   (952KB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify libtool-2.4.6.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 151308092983D606

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.15
  Gnulib v0.1-336-g342d9f0


* Noteworthy changes in release 2.4.6 (2015-02-15) [stable]

** New features:

  - LT_SYS_LIBRARY_PATH can be set in, or at configure time
    and persists correctly in the generated libtool script.

** Bug fixes:

  - Fix a race condition in ltdl dryrun test that would cause spurious
    random failures of that test.

  - LT_SYS_DLSEARCH_PATH is munged correctly.
