  Which means "link that specific file"

  And libtool turns that into "link to", which doesn't exist.

  <sigh>  There's a reason we deleted libtool in the v3 branch.  Libtool
claims to make things easier.  All it does is screw things up worse.

  libtool is a horrible piece of software.

  Just do "./configure;make;make install" for now.

  Or, run v3.
