How defunct is the project?  Is there still a significant userbase that
might want to run things compiled using libtool, or is it so dead and
defunct that nobody uses it anymore?

If it's the former, libtool support certainly shouldn't be removed yet

Does the GCC stuff use the amigaos* configuration name as well?  If not,
I don't see how it's incompatible, if it does then surely an extra case
statement would distinguish the two?

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
