Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.4.7, Package name: libtool-2.4.7, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This is GNU Libtool, a generic library support script. Libtool hides
the complexity of using shared libraries behind a consistent, portable

To use libtool, add the new generic library building commands to your
Makefile, Makefile.in, or Makefile.am.

Log message:
libtool: Remove hardcoded compiler objects on SunOS.

I've been running with this patch for many years, and it's required to ensure
correct operation of USE_PKGSRC_GCC_RUNTIME, as well as allowing libtool to be
compiler-agnostic, at least within the same compiler family.  Bad things happen
otherwise, such as multiple libstdc++.so's being pulled in, and it matches the
behaviour of NetBSD and others.

While here simplify some of the logic, removing support for GCC 2.7(!) and
Solaris 2.5 and earlier(!!), making this section of code easier to read.

Ride previous PKGREVISION bump.

Log message:
libtool: Unbreak the 2.4.7 update.

The main issue is that the configure script was generated with a different
version of autoconf compared to upstream, and hardcoded CC='cc -std=gnu11'
which broke inferred tag detection, as well as likely causing other issues
elsewhere.  Generated patches _must_ use the same version as upstream so that
diffs can be reviewed for changes.

While here remove patches for MirBSD and MidnightBSD.  MirBSD was discontinued
many years ago, and support for MidnightBSD was already included upstream.
This significantly simplifies our patches and helps to identify issues.

Bump PKGREVISION of libtool-base and libtool-fortran.

Log message:
libtool*: update to 2.4.7

* Noteworthy changes in release 2.4.7 (2022-03-16) [stable]

** New features:

  - Libtool script now supports (configure-time and runtime) ARFLAGS
    variable, which obsoletes AR_FLAGS.  This is due to naming conventions
    among other *FLAGS and to be consistent with Automake's ARFLAGS.

  - Gnulib testsuite is enabled and run during 'make check'.

  - Support the Windows version of the Intel C Compiler (icl) in
    libtool script.

  - Pass '-fsanitize=*' flags for GCC and LLVM, and '-specs=*' for GCC
    to linker.

  - Pass '-Xassembler=*' and '-Wa,*' flag to compilers and linkers.

  - The variable 'FILECMD' with default value of '/usr/bin/file' was used to
    replace existing hard coded references to '/usr/bin/file'.

  - Add MidnightBSD support.

** Important incompatible changes:

  - Libtool changed ARFLAGS/AR_FLAGS default from 'cru' to 'cr'.

  - Do not pass '-pthread' to Solaris linker.

  - 'libtool' and 'libtoolize' scripts now use '#! /usr/bin/env sh' shebang.
    Previously '#! /bin/sh' was used, which presents challenges for
    containerized environments.

** Bug fixes:

  - Fix significant slowdown of libtoolize for certain projects (regression
    introduced in 2.4.3 release) caused by infinite m4 macro recursion.

  - Mitigate the slowdown of libtool script (introduced in v2.4.3) caused by
    increased number of calls to '$SED $sed_quote_subst' (bug#20006).

  - Properly parse and export TLS symbols on AIX.

  - Various bug fixes surrounding use of 'sed'.

  - Darwin systems set proper "allow undefined" flag on OSX 11, and
    PowerPC 10.5.

  - Removed some deprecated tests related to 'Makefile.inc' files.
