It's not a version issue.  The Mac OS X libtool and the Linux libtool
program are not versions of the same program.  Gordon Matzigkeit's
Linux libtool is a shell script.  Apple's /Developer/usr/bin/libtool
is a Mach-O universal binary.  They don't do the same thing.  The
Apple is (waves hands vaguely) a replacement for ar+ranlib and also
generates .dylib files.  To find the version of Apple's libtool:
m% libtool -V
Apple Computer, Inc. version cctools-800
