I never want to use the libtool embedded in the unixODBC source (or any 
other source package). I prefer to ensure that I have a libtool 
installed and available before I build. I have run into problems with 
building dependent software where more than a few libtools come into 
play and that just sucks as it sometimes means that the resulting links 
fail (either at build time or at run time).

Of course this only works with the latest and greatest libtool is 
working properly - and it does seem to be pretty good.
