My understanding is that the geos distribution uses the libtool version
in the .tar file, not a system libtool.  Isn't that right?  If so, it seems
the system on which the geos distribution is generated might be the one
that needs to be updated - if newer libtool's do indeed take care of

In any event, I think having "same named" object files going into a library
is a risky practice, and may cause problems on some systems. For instance
putting .obj files into a .lib file on win32 (though I think it does not
affect our current .dll generation).
