That's probably enough. Indeed, I had assumed the tools were
*already* doing this for me -- since the libtool check failed on one
platform during buildcheck, I assumed that when it didn't fail
somewhere else, everything must be all right. Of course, everything
was all right for just a build, but not for a dist. Which means
dist.sh should do a stricter check than buildcheck does.

Since I have this problem on my home machine, I'll take a look at
making such a check.
