The patch achieves that the .libs subdirectory that libtool creates in
each build directroy for its private files is deleted after 'clean' (if
it's empty), because otherwise it will stay there forever.  You might have
trouble seeing this because Automake automatically generates commands to
remove .libs, but I don't use Automake, and Libtool should be able to do
this transparently.

The Autoconf manual claims that 'break 2' is portable.  But your solution
looks nice.

Works here.  Thanks.
