Not necessarily. It's a good idea to keep changes minimal by all means.
I too was too lazy to investigate the diff between klibtool and libtool,
maybe it's a trivia, maybe not. It only matters if the produced libraries

$ objdump --private-header libkpathsea.so.3.3.1 |grep SONAME
it should be something like:
