In a project i'm following, i've seen that bug report:

The build system pass a huge number of identical options and libtool does not 
try to remove them

is it a problem with libtool (that is, libtool should indeed remove such 
identical options) or in the build system (that is,
we should optimize the build system so that non identical options are passed) ?

The URL you posted requires a login. Are you able to provide an example or summarize the problematic identical options here?

Libtool is not intended to be an optimizer. If it drops or re-orders options (as happens sometimes), then the build may fail.

A list of arguments which is already too long when libtool is invoked is already a lost cause.
