Remove massive overheads from loading programs that use many
libtool-generated shared libraries by forcing libtool into understanding
that FreeBSD can correctly handle shared library dependencies.
This code already exists in the libtool CVS repository but without knowing
the release schedule (if any) for a new libtool 1.5.x series, and the
exceptional performance gains (gnucash for example uses 122 shared libraries
and with things rebuilt now starts up in ~10 seconds as opposed to 15
*minutes*). Further, a number of people have assisted in extensive testing
of this code in a series of different environments, so I am therefore
adding this patch to the tree.
