First of all, you forgot that all this should also be run in `libltdl'
directory too.

Secondly, if any CVS user is supposed to run this script, there is no need
to keep 374273 bytes of 33 Makefile.in's as well as 2 `aclocal.m4' and
2 `configure' on CVS.
Keeping them on CVS creates additional problems while updating.

It looks like that Kaffe developers fight with makefiles rather than with
failing tests :-(
Lesstif syndrome :-(
