Recent libtools are a lot better. The default behaviour now is to strip out
dupes. But it doesn't always work due to Makefile vagaries.

ltmain.sh contains this:-

"--preserve-dup-deps) duplicate_deps="yes" ;;"

so you can tell it to preserve dupes if you want to.

The real problem is that most libtool using pkg's come with their own
libtool, so if it aint a newer version, then you're outta luck :-(
