Ah, libtool.


Might work to do something like:

./libtool --mode=install install -v -m0755 disk-utils/mkswap /tools/bin
./libtool --mode=install install -v -m0755 mount/mount /tools/bin
./libtool --mode=install install -v -m0755 mount/umount /tools/bin

from the top-level util-linux-ng directory.  (Optionally providing the
binary after /tools/bin if needed.)  That way libtool will process the
script and find the .libs/* binary, installing that into the final
system, instead of us just copying a random script around.

It might also work to "make -C disk-utils install" / "make -C mount
install", but I don't know what else that will require, or install...

That would work as well, of course.
