the old mechanism still supports all architectures that were supported before,
*but* the name of the library file is different and a small but important
detail is got wrong (the soname is not set properly).
so i advise to only use the --witout-libtool during development and maybe
testing, but definetly use the libtool build in production systems (sure it
is sloooow, but you don't rebuild gdal everyday, do you? ;)
my plan (not sure if Frank will agree, thou) is to leave the -without-libtool
option to only support the development platforms (linux mainly but also any
unix with gcc and gnu ld). this will further simplify the build
infrastructure and still leave anybody using the gnu tools with the option of
a fast build.
