This brings up a question -- do we want to move to having
patches posted to the mailing list for review before they
are committed? That's what other git-using projects I deal
with do, and it's much easier to do that emailing with git...

I'm not much of a fan of automake. I think our current

No we don't, not if you mean GNU libtool. We check for and use
the MacOS libtool (which is a sort of ar+ranlib replacement, apparently)
and we carefully avoid running libtool if it's the GNU one. (Check
the ChangeLog.)
