Is there an archive somewhere of the SVN list?

What could we be doing wrong? APR is just calling AC_PROG_LIBTOOL.
Is there a step we're missing in autoconf? The only thing in common
between the two systems are the autoconf/libtool versions - change
one of the versions and the combo works.

What I'm seeing is that libtool wants to build a shared library and
fails miserably, so it's failing at compile time - not install time.
We're not even making it to the relink phase done at an install
with 1.4. And, with 1.4.2 - it just silently disables shared
libraries.

I've now managed to get a current GNU toolchain (binutils, gcc,
libtool, autoconf) built on Solaris. I'm going to see if I can
reproduce this on other OSes. Any help is appreciated...
