This is probably a reasonable thing to think about for the next release
(I think it's too late to risk it for 6.4).  It'd be a nice way of
getting rid of that platform-specific Makefile cruft I was complaining
about the other day.

But ... libtool isn't completely ready for prime time.  I've been
distributing the latest release of libjpeg with libtool-based shared
lib support, but I was not brave enough to make that the default
configuration, let alone depend on its working correctly to be able
to build at all.  And I've gotten enough trouble reports to convince
me this was a wise choice.  If we do use libtool, we had better make
sure that there is a a way to fall back to a simple no-shared-libraries
build process.
