Generic library support script.
Libtool is a computer programming tool from the GNU build system used for creating portable compiled libraries. It was designed to extend Automake, but can be used independently within hand-coded makefiles, as well.
The program has a consistent, portable interface to make using shared libraries simpler. Libtool supports building static libraries on all platforms. It also includes GNU libltdl, the libtool dynamic loader library.
