Sorry for that.  Compilation needs something like libtool-cache, if it

Adapting Libtool to do this better for cases of interest might be a
cheap way to get more speed quickly.

for all decent platforms, not win32), for the case of many objects.

I think that the problem is that ltmain.c in the libtool directory only contains:

#include <stdio.h>              /* printf */
#include <stdlib.h>             /* exit */

main (argc, argv)
     int argc;
     char **argv;
  printf ("hello, world!\n");
  exit (0);

If someone should care to finish this program, then libtool.m4 can focus on creating the configuration file it needs.

Libtool has been around since 1996 but its implementation is still fundamentally broken. We try to solve the problem by increasing the amount of problem code (Microsoft approach). Rather than chasing our tails trying to make a moby shell script run faster, maybe we should be thinking about creating a real program that runs quickly.
