Yeah, libtool is vile +1 kill it.
One thing to note: if at some point we want to build FR as a native
windows app, it will be necessary to move the server core into a DLL.
This is because DLLs cannot load symbols in EXEs in Windows. libtool
sort of "handles" this for you, so if we kill it we'll need to handle it
But TBH that shouldn't be hard; the EXE would just be a stub that called
the server entry point in the DLL.
