sorry about that. Normally one would not check-in a configure script (and related files such as libtool) and I thought I could avoid having to delete these files and just re-generate it when needed/wanted. I had to add the --preserve-dup-deps option to be able to link with newer libtool and didn't consider that the old copy of libtool would bail out with an error.
