Can anyone explain to me what problem libtool is supposed to address? 
On my systems, it will constantly pick up mismatched sets of headers and 
libraries (or sometimes point to non-existent libraries).

Even worse, if A depends on B and B depends on C.v1, then it will create 
a *direct* dependency from A to C.v1.  Now I download C.v2 and recompile 
B; suddenly, A insists on having both C.v1 and C.v2 loaded.  Wackiness 

If libtool is the answer, I'm afraid to know what the question is...
