Fixed with the patch below.  I don't care much that, in the Libtool
package itself, the will result in a libtool script with the line
# Generated automatically by config.status (libtool 1.2600 2008/03/02 02:19:16) 

instead of GNU libtool.

This has been reported several times, please speak up if I forgot to
mention a reporter.  The hard part with this patch was ensuring that
none of the libtool code uses this bit in a sed pattern (in some parts
script headers are checked, but not this one, apparently).

Cheers, and thanks to both of you for the report (I put you in THANKS),

        prefix before the host package name in the "Generated by" line
        for the libtool script.
