It's just that some of the scripts generated with 1.3.5 says things like
this:

libtool: ltconfig version `' does not match ltmain.sh version `1.3.5'

In fact, when I build a distcleaned subversion, I get that failure in apr:

[neon builds fine, but then:]

It seems to be even worse: files generated with libtool 1.3.5 don't seem to
run fine when libtool 1.4 is installed.

I agree. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at libtool internals so I am not
the right person to make the proper adjustments that might be needed.
