With libtool 2.2, we no longer need to apply patches to Makefiles before building on these systems. Using libtool 2.2 with the current configure.ac produces many lines of warnings when the newly-deprecated AC_PROG_LIBTOOL macro is used in conjunction with certain other macros (such as GR_FORTRAN). We can avoid the warnings and still be able to use either libtool 1.5 or 2.2 with the attached one-line patch to configure.ac. This should be considered a temporary measure until we are ready to require users who need to run bootstrap to upgrade to libtool 2.2. It would be convenient for Cygwin and [[MinGW]] users if future release tarballs were prepared using libtool 2.2. This would eliminate the need for tarball users to install autotools and run ./bootstrap. -- Don W.
