I did recently post the better bits of the OpenEmbedded/Yocto Project patchset
for libtool:

Those are at up to date and in regular use in OE/YP which is widely used for
cross compiling for Linux/mingw and others. We tend to find sysroot and cross
compile issues in particular and we also find reproducibility and parallel make
race issues.

If you have any questions or concerns on any of those I'm happy to try and help.
