Hi guys,

Is there a reason we're using Apple's libtool instead of GNU libtool
(glibtool) by default?  I think we'd be able to build dynamic libraries a
little more correctly if we used glibtool.  Matt, we can activate the build
bundles with a -module flag to glibtool, Apple's libtool can't do
dynamically loaded libraries.
