Hey Pavel.  :)

Whoops.  I guess it's not a problem then.  Like I said, my knowledge of Libtool 
is still
sketchy.  I believe what I described is what happens during the build of a 
project, and
I assumed from your description of Libtool as, "viral", that the same behavior 
would be
evident on install.

My apologies, but I think what I said still applies to the viral creep of 
Libtool inside
