I've had my fill of autotool problems (especially libtool)

Don't throw in libtool with the rest.  libtool was available in the
spirit of the auto tools only in its very first version (which of those
reading this only Jim and Tom will know).  Then came the windows and
HP-SUX idiots and ruined it.  I've for the longest time said libtool
should not be used (and I don't do it in my code).  In the worst case a
simple Linux-only replacement for libtool should be used.

I agree that a Linux-only replacement for libtool should be used, if at all. So why isn't there one available in Fedora that deps on "libtool" will pick by default?
