[mapserver-dev] libtool usage

While trying to build mapserver as a shared library, it occured to me
that our build-process is rather fragile. (For the curious this is
ongoing work on making a mapserver apache module, which requires a
clean+crossplatform way of loading the libmapserv shared library into
the httpd server).

Is there a reason we are not using libtool for managing the
compilation tasks for us?
I know gdal can be configured to build with or without libtool, is
there a reason to maintain both build scripts?
