i’ve had a look again at libtool.m4 and don’t really get why RM is set wrong. obviously the _LT_CONFIG macro literally requires _LT_FILEUTILS_DEFAULT, which should set RM to ‘rm -f’. I also found several uses of $RM with different options, sometimes even ‘-f’. So actually i am not sure what would be the best solution here.
right now i could change the patch like proposed by Eric Blake to the one i attached. It will at least fix the direct problem i encountered. But maybe for the long term, someone should check and maintain the whole libtool.m4 file?! kind regards christian
