I beg to disagree.

I beg to disagree again, to the utmost extent.  :)

If the LIBOBJDIR issue is the only one: it's almost trivial to work
around it within Libtool.  Show at eleven on libtool-patches as soon as
I've tested my prototype 10-line patch enough.  :->

(Surely the darwin-related patch is still important; but so are a couple
of Solaris 10 issues fixed after 2.59.  But bootstrapping with released
autotools should *just work* other than that, after the patch.)
