Hi there,

In order to support the porting efforts based on Glibc and kernels of *BSD
(GNU/kFreeBSD and GNU/kNetBSD), for which I'm the principal developer, we
need to update every package that uses libtool to version 1.5.2-1 or later.

I've filed wishlist bugs for this to a few specific packages, but the bulk
of libtool-using libraries in Debian is yet to be updated. Each maintainer
can help by doing either of these things (preferably both):

  - Update the libtool in your package. You can do that by running the
    following commands in the package source tree (Make sure you're using
    libtool 1.5.2-1 or later):

	libtoolize -c -f
	aclocal (-Im4 might be needed if there's an "m4" template dir)

    If your package uses a tar-in-tar system you'll have to run these
    commands on build time by other means. Particularly, if you use CDBS
    the DEB_AUTO_UPDATE_{LIBTOOL,AUTOMAKE,AUTOCONF} variables can help you.    

  - Ask upstream to update libtool in their next release. The upstream version
    of libtool supports GNU/k*BSD since version 1.5.2, so you can tell them
    to use any version equal or later than that for the update.

Thanks for your cooperation.

It seems quite likely that most packages have a newer libtool by now.  Those 
packages that don't work on non-Linux ports regularly get bug reports about 
that.  It's probably better to close this bug and track the progress of the 
specific bugs with a usertag.
