    Fedora Update Notification
    Product     : Fedora Core 3
    Name        : libtool
    Version     : 1.5.6
    Release     : 4.FC3.1
    Summary     : The GNU libtool, which simplifies the use of shared libraries.
    Description :
    The libtool package contains the GNU libtool, a set of shell scripts
    which automatically configure UNIX and UNIX-like architectures to
    generically build shared libraries.  Libtool provides a consistent,
    portable interface which simplifies the process of using shared
    If you are developing programs which will use shared libraries, you
    should install libtool.
    Update Information:
    Libtool is a program used by many other programs to create static and
    dynamic libraries using a portable interface.
    Libtool is generally configured as part of every package that uses it. At
    that time, it collects information about the compiler being used.
    When the libtool package itself is built, it performs such configuration
    and installs a script named /usr/bin/libtool that holds configuration
    information about the compiler as of the time the script was created.
    For purposes of creating C++ libraries or programs, the configuration
    information collected by libtool includes pathnames of object files that
    g++ normally links in implicitly. Should their location change because of
    a compiler version upgrade, the information stored in the previously-build
    libtool script becomes incorrect, and the script has to be rebuilt.
    There was a compiler upgrade during the development cycle of Fedora
    Core 3, and the libtool package was not rebuilt afterwards.
    Users that intend to use the pre-installed libtool script to create C++
    libraries or programs should upgrade to these updated packages, which
    resolve this issue.
    * Fri Feb 25 2005 Alexandre Oliva  - 1.5.6-4.FC3.1
    - add dependency on gcc version; /usr/bin/libtool hardcodes paths into
    gcc's internal directories.  Avoids resurfacing of BZ#140977.
