Thanks for pointing this out. I agree that we should filter them
out. However, we should do that systematically and not via

The question is whether we can filter out beta by their versioning
scheme - which seems to be impossible for libtool.

So we'll have to go the other route and check their directory listing
instead of the tags of their version control system.

I'll adjust the libtool.mk accordingly after the release.

Indeed, but it would add another system requirement, or we'd have
to build an own lzma version. I'd like to avoid that kind of stuff
as long as possible. Also, note that the stronger compression isn't
significant in libtool, at least when compared to packages like Qt,
GCC or Boost.
