This package contains the GNU libtool documentation.
GNU libtool is generic library support script.  Libtool hides
the complexity of generating special library types (such as shared
libraries) behind a consistent interface.  To use libtool, add the
new generic library building commands to your Makefile,,
or  See the documentation for details.  Libtool supports
building static libraries on all platforms.
