I suppose platform independent is rather tricky here, because you'd need
the Makefile.am, use platform dependent rules within automake conditionals
and set an AM_CONDITIONAL for each platform depending on the $host variable
in configure.in.

The lines for the *nix conditional would read like in the patch below,
and should work independently of Unix OS/libtool version, but on windows
or mac os i don't know.
Trickiest is to make the shell evaluate the library path set by libtool.

If you can specify the name of the libtool javahl.la library in Makefile.am,
set SVN_JAVAHL_LTLIB to the same.
