NAME

libtool.eclass - quickly update bundled libtool code  

DESCRIPTION

This eclass patches ltmain.sh distributed with libtoolized packages with the relink and portage patch among others

Note, this eclass does not require libtool as it only applies patches to generated libtool files. We do not run the libtoolize program because that requires a regeneration of the main autotool files in order to work properly.  

FUNCTIONS

elibtoolize [dirs] [--portage] [--reverse-deps] [--patch-only] [--remove-internal-dep=xxx] [--shallow] [--no-uclibc]
Apply a smorgasbord of patches to bundled libtool files. This function should always be safe to run. If no directories are specified, then ${S} will be searched for appropriate files.

If the --shallow option is used, then only ${S}/ltmain.sh will be patched.

The other options should be avoided in general unless you know what's going on.
