Re: libtool compilation failures (ITS#795)
I do question if this version is self-consistent within openldap
2.0.x.. For instance, openldap versions 1.2.x still compile correctly
which the same differences in libtool. I am wondering if how it has been
used in 2.0.x is open to mis-predicted behavior. I'll wage this as well in
the RPM cycles, but an "error" in say libtool 1.3.3, if such existed, that
is "self-consistent" in your build, is an error nonetheless, and can
affect your package on a percentage of your platforms..
