It's a magic hack.  Somehow (according to Alexandre) it magically adds
/usr/lib/libc5 to the path, even though "libc5" occurs nowhere in the
binary. (go figure.) 

Maybe we should just agree that libtool is broken, that it won't be
fixed upstream, and just fix the Debian version?  This would mean
that we would have to rerun autoconf &co when we build packages -
but it beats arguing with this guy till the end of time.
