I try to make sure CVS always builds for posix systems.  windows
fixes do not usually come until near the release.  CVS code should
not generate corrupt files or be non-lossless either but there is
always some risk.

I've built an installed the latest to a local directory with no
problem (libtool-1.5.16)
