I'm unsure on how to interpret the libtool related information because it is very simplistic

configure:11699: checking if libtool supports shared libraries

however, at some point earlier, the following test might be related

configure:8998: checking whether the fccpx linker (sparc64-linux-ld -m elf64_sparc) supports shared libraries
configure:10069: result: no

Can we provide some additional info or run additional tests to improve libtool on this system?

The generated config.log file contains detail information regarding the tests performed and error messages produced. Looking there is the next step.

The '-print-search-dirs' error message is because libtool attempted to treat the compiler like GCC and obtain its default linker search path.

It is unfortunate if Fujitsu does not care to contribute. If that is indeed true, then that would be their loss since a large portion of free software packages use Autotools (including libtool) and these packages won't compile as effectively if the target is not supported. Fujitsu's system would be barren of commonly available software. Fujitsu is in the best position to support their own compiler and platform.
