I wasn't clear.  The bug is on HP/UX only; the *test* is done on all
platforms, for who knows what reason, and thus trips up on Solaris because
of a completely unrelated complaint.  One would think they would test an
HP/UX-specific bug only on HP/UX....

Workaround (1):  edit line 551++ to not check the size of
conftest.err, then libtoolize --force all GNOME packages.

Workaround (2):  make a shell script wrapper for cc which saves stderr and
greps out the warning message, and use that to libtoolize.
