Sure.  You are the first one to find out that libtool 1.3.x doesn't work :)

I see this sometimes, but it doesn't seem to be reproducible.  Esp, I see
this when I do funny things, like configuring in the source tree and in a
subdirectory (after a make distclean).  Something very strange must go on.
Usually starting with a fresh copy of the CVS repository works for me.  Can
you try if this fixes it for you?
