Cut a new release?

Since libtool latest release 3 years ago, some important problems have
been patched. In particular, "-fuse-ld=…" is now propagated to the
driver when linking.

For example, it is not possible to build LLVM modules using libtool on
Ubuntu LTS using only released packages. "llvm-config --cxxflags"
outputs "… -fuse-ld=gold -Wl,--no-keep-files-mapped …",  and only the
linker option "--no-keep-files-mapped" is passed to the driver
(g++/clang++) while "-fuse-gold=ld" is dropped, causing GNU ld to halt
with an error because "--no-keep-files-mapped" is a gold-only option.

This is a known problem which has been fixed in libtool repository in
Feb. 2016 (f9970d99293faf908fdc153a653fa5781095fb7a), but no libtool
release seems to have taken place since then.

Would it be possible to cut a formal release?
