Description Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2021-01-17 01:19:29 UTC
To quote slibtool's first paragraph from its README file:

`slibtool` is an independent reimplementation of the widely used libtool,
written in C. `slibtool` is designed to be a clean, fast, easy-to-use
libtool drop-in replacement, and is accordingly aimed at package authors,
distro developers, and system integrators. `slibtool` maintains compatibility
with libtool in nearly every aspect of the tool's functionality as well as
semantics, leaving out (or turning into a no-op) only a small number of
features that are no longer needed on modern systems.


As we all might have experienced the awful inferiority that GNU libtool has, we should consider trying to replace GNU libtool with slibtool. 

This tracker bug should be blocked from all issues arising from slibtool usage for building packages.
