Dear Thomas,

The problem I had in mind is that Apple libtool does not have
-rpath option, it has -install-name to achieve similar effect.

yes (now that you remind me, I recall that this is like rpath, but
unlike - cannot have multiple install-name's).

I suggest changing the configure error message
"This is not libtool" to "This is not GNU libtool".

oh - what does Apple libtool say for --version?

Since Apple libtool, while being a good libtool,
has options different from GNU libtool,
the present message is misleading.
Also, please, state clearly in the INSTALL file
that ncurses wants GNU libtool, not just some libtool.

     Sincerely, Michail
