And now, the only SVN team member coming from a country whose ISO
three-letter code is SVN, will demonstrate the dark magic inherent in
this sinister combination:

    cygwin$ cp /usr/local/share/libtool/libtool.m4 /usr/share/libtool.m4

Abracadabra, it works! (You still have to disable threads in APR,
though, and probably cast a few other spells. But no matter.)

Now, I wonder why libtool doesn't install libtool.m4 into aclocal's
share dir. It does look for aclocal at configure time. It's very unmagical.
