--- Comment #7 from David Woodhouse <dwmw2(a)infradead.org> ---
You're correct that we don't *install* the binary libtool wrapper.
Whether building natively, or building with MinGW, the wrapper is only used for
running the program locally inside the build tree.
When developing software, this is useful — you make a change, you build and you
run it from the build tree to test it.
The MinGW support on Fedora is extremely useful — I can have build trees for
Linux and for Windows side by side, and test my changes in both environments
(mostly using Wine, and then occasionally actually testing on real Windows
But when I was adding full UTF16 command line handling for Windows, the Fedora
MinGW setup failed me because of this bug. I *had* to test every little change
on real Windows, which is a PITA. At least until I realised it wasn't a wine
bug, and I could work around it :)
