In what sense?  You should just have to set variables such as CC, LD,
AR, NM and RANLIB when you run configure.

libtool just creates in KaffeS.c what Kaffe used to create by itself
in order to be able to simulate dlopening.  KaffeS.c currently
contains more symbols than it might have to, but this is not a real
problem unless you care for small footprints like Godmar does, and
libtool is being improved so as to support this situation too.
