Re: Bug#66135: libtool_1.3.5-1(unstable): wrapping of binaries fails with -D__LIBTOOL_IS_A_FOOL__

Just "grep __LIBTOOL_IS_A_FOOL__ debian/rules" (for every source
package) should find most of them, I think (not tested).

Since the hack is probably exactly the same in every instance, it
might even be possible to develop a simple script for automatically
removing the hack (not sure if this would be worthwhile or not).

Just don't remove the hack unless the program uses a recent version of
libtool (look at the version on the initial bug report for a general
idea, do any packages still fall into this category?)
