I have a libtool patch for kde that I think should be committed. I'm relatively sure that it has already been done in the latest libtool, but the kde people suggested I send it to you guys first to see if it really is or not. I'm not clever enough to find a version number to compare in ... Anyway, here's the patch:

John, you don't need to do this. The kde-libtool patch is a hack to work around libtool not understanding frameworks, and not a real fix (hence why it's not sent upstream to libtool). Peter O'Gorman is working on a real solution but it's not ready yet.

Also, sending tarballs pretty much guarantees the libtool folks won't accept it. You want patches, with changelogs. <grin>

We put a lot of thought into our defaults.  We like them.  If we
didn't, we would have made something else be the default.  So keep
your cotton-pickin' hands off our defaults.  Don't touch.  Consider
them mandatory.  "Mandatory defaults" has a nice ring to it.
