The new libtoolize option --no-warn has been
added. The --debug, --no-warn, --quiet, and
--verbose options can be passed to libtoolize
through the environment variable
LIBTOOLIZE_OPTIONS. Several bugs with macros have
This release fixes setting of shlibpath variables (LD_LIBRARY_PATH and similar) and the order of link search paths for creating and testing of uninstalled libraries. Silent failure of 'libtoolize --ltdl' if libltdl files are not present has been fixed. If non-pic objects were not compiled, and libtool is called in link mode, libtool no longer silently creates an empty archive, but rather falls back to pic objects. A potential denial of service by malicious other users for tmpdir directory creation at relink time has been fixed.
A long-standing Solaris CC limitation failing with
-no-undefined was fixed. Yet another regression
with ownership of libltdl data files was fixed. A
work-around was made for breakage on Tru64 due to
shell bugs. A regression with spurious object name
conflicts against installed static libraries which
were erronously treated as convenience libraries
was fixed. Building of packages on Cygwin managed
mounts was fixed.
This release fixes installation problems apparent in 1.5.4.
This release has various bugfixes.
