Yeah, the Debian-patched libtool-1.4.3 used to package 1.0.0 has both a
patch to fix DESTDIR installs, and a patch to ignore -pthread on link
lines.

Use of libtool 1.5/1.5.2 is not advisable since the configure script
would then fail on systems without a C++ compiler.

Of these problems I'd worry least about DESTDIR installs failing: people
doing DESTDIR installs are probably packagers and can just run
autogen.sh in their package builds using known-good version of libtool.

So libtool 1.4.3 probably remains the version of choice.
