1. Get a very large gun.

2. Press it gently against libtool-1.5.

3. Pull the trigger.

4. Compile and install libtool-1.4.3.

Libtool 1.5 is broken like hell with respect to numerous packages and I
can only hope it's not actually in the CVS version of the book.  It's a
shot in the dark on my part to guess that you're running it, but
considering that nothing else changes "so" to "0" when it messes up,
it's a pretty big target to shoot at.
