Actually, I think I have found a libtool fix -
First do a "make clean"
Then edit ""
At about line 1514, you should find the following lines :
        dir=`$echo "X$arg" | $Xsed -e 's/^-L//'`
        # We need an absolute path.
        case $dir in
        [\\/]* | [A-Za-z]:[\\/]*) ;;
          absdir=`cd "$dir" && pwd`

Problem appears to be this last line.
Replace with

Then the usual configure, etc.
This should get you through the make.
It however, needs further checking.
At least, if the make is successful, run a "make check".
Problems may arise after a make install, as the absolute path name
may be required somewhere in the installed libs/progs.
I need to check this.
