Hi Gary!

I notice that the latest sharutils relies on iconv.m4 and friends from
gnulib to provide --with-libiconv-prefix and --with-libintl-prefix.
But, these macros are assuming that you will link using libtool,.....

m4/gnulib-cache.m4 seems to indicate that you already called
gnulib-tool with --no-libtool, but I'm not sure whether it's a bug
in gnulib that injects all those -R's into the linker flags, or
whether sharutils is not using gnulib correctly.

I can work around it .....

If it is incompatible to use "--no-libtool" and to use "iconv.m4", then
it is definitely a gnulib bug to allow that without reporting an error.

That notwithstanding, I do not remember if there was a reason at all
for using "--no-libtool".  My thinking may have been that "this is all
working now and all I need to do is pull in the various m4 macros
that were carried around in sharutils source and are now obsolete",
consequently try to not perturb too much.  Dunno.  I got no complaints
from the last release, proving either that it works for the most part
or nobody really cares.  :-D

Let me see if removing the no-libtool thingey makes it work.  Thanks - Bruce
