I am sorry Albert, but we have had that discussion on the samba mailing
lists a couple of times, and I am not willing to start an internal war
within the Samba team over a small part of Samba.

In addition, there are strongly held views by a couple of people who have
lots more experience than I that libtool is not right for the Samba team.
