I had hoped that the upgarde to libtool 1.4.3 would
make these go away, but it obviously didn't happen.
Nevertheless, browsing through the libttol ChangeLog,
I see that they've done some OpenBSD work ... If you
want this resolved upstream, you could use Dan's patch
to upgrade kaffe to latest libtool from CVS, and see
if that one works better on OpenBSD. If it doesn't
please submit a bug report & the patch to the libtool
mailing list so they can take a look at it and merge
it in, fixing this one for everybody.

I'm sorry if this seems like a long delay from just
checking it in, but as this is actually a bugfix for
libtool, I'd prefer to see it go there first, so that
the libtool developers can comment on it and merge it

Dan's patch can be found at 
and it upgrades kaffe 1.0.7 to latest libtool from
CVS. It may or may not work with the CVS version, that
hasn't been tested yet ;) On the other hand, this
build error occurrs with 1.0.7, too, right?
