Jeremy, you are right in that this looks similar to the libfam problem,
except the fix is much easier :-)

Doing the "libtoolize --force" thing should help (tho' I haven't tested it).
But.., the blfs patch is modifying "". In this instance it would
be much simpler to apply the patch to "configure" then, in theory, there
will be no trigger to rerun the autotools.

People who keep on slamming libtool seem not to understand the real issues.
IMHO, libtool-1.5 is no worse than libtool-1.4.x (but in general, libtool
can sometimes be more trouble than it's worth :-)
