The problems with Libtool 1.5 are due to improper patching in the BLFS
instructions for shadow and fam.  See the previous threads in BLFS-Dev
and here for more info - especially stuff by me.  IMHO, the issues with
libtool 1.5 need to be addressed by the BLFS maintainers, and in fact,
the problems with fam are in BLFS's bugzilla.
