I couldn't figure out how to use mpkg or install from them (even from the directions) and RPM's don't work in Mac OSX.

The FreeBSD /usr/ports stuff has another way of handling different
versions of the auto* tools.

I'd gladly install a pile of software if I knew what to install to resolve the issue.

Since the issue mainly affects libtool and I've been unsuccessful in determining what Apple does (if they do anything special) to get 1.6 to work I was wondering how libtool is tied in to automake and was wondering how to get it working with 1.9.5 since this seems to be what;s failing.

Digging a little further, it seems that the file "libtool" generated when I use automake 1.9.5 seems to be the cause of the problem.

My sample build program is ClamAv-0.88.

I did a "configure, make" and it builds without issues.

I copied the libtool script (libtool-1.6), installed automake-1.9.5 in /usr/local (so I wouldn't have to reinstall my OS), tryied to build it again and it failed, copied the libtool script (libtool-1.9.5) so I could examine them for differences.

How is this file generated???

If it's generated from a template then perhaps I can edit the template and add the missing stuff.
