I'd happily see autoconf2.5/libtool1.5 support in FreeRADIUS but the
last time someone tried that, things got nastily broken. It's on my
TODO list (hopefully before 1.0 sometime in February) but my TODO list
is in pretty poor shape.

On the other hand, it'd have to continue to work with the wild and
whacky spread of architectures people try to compile FreeRADIUS upon.

I think it was being discussed again on the development mailling list
a little while ago...

On a more general note, I'd rather see Sarge with
libtool1.4/autoconf2.13, and happily see Sarge+1 without.
