Is there some kind of "mega-patch" available to apply this
more easily? I am sure that a lot of valuable time has been
spent into the support for msvc and link.exe in libtool. But
looking through the "dozens of mails" to pick up patches
doesn't sound very motivating to me, either.

It would be nice if we could push this forward.

Many thanx
