Hello Michael,

Thanks for the report.

That is correct.  On systems where
  ./libtool --config | grep fast_install

is "no", it doesn't currently work.  fast_install is no on HP-UX/PA
because we don't use nodefaultrpath, IIRC, only on ia64.  And IIRC there
was a conscious decision not to do so on PA, but offhand don't remember
why.  Libtool 1.5.x should be similar here.

I'm not sure why you think that.  The testsuite matches the expected
behavior of the code, just maybe not the desired one.  That's what
"expected failure"s mean.
