Howdy fellow Nix nerds!

I was recently added as the new maintainer of `libtool' and was hoping to get farm slots to run CI/CD on `libtool' moving forward.

I've been a Nix/NixOS user myself for years and made a handful of contributions to `nixpkgs' in that time - so I was very pleasantly surprised to learn that Nix has made Hydra available for GNU's usage :)

I have expressions written already that I had been using personally ( both flakes and legacy derivations ), so if you let me know how to get those ported for Hydra I'd appreciate it ( I'll likely find that info in the Nix manuals, but if there are any added quirks let me know ).

I am already aware of a required patch in `libtool' to replace existing references to `/usr/bin/file' that are necessary to pass most tests, so I'll be sure that those get merged soon. Once that patch is applied the `make check' target behaves as intended on NixOS systems producing the same failures that are observed on Debian and RHEL boxes ( which are the only two non-NixOS systems I have tested on so far ).

Thank you for your time,

-Alex Ameen
