FYI, libtool 1.3.5 works fairly well with vendor compilers too (I have
not tested the libtool support in ncurses yet). The only problem with
the 1.3.5 version is C++ which does not work well with vendor
compilers. The multilang branch fixes this though. As ncurses uses
both C/C++ (though C++ can be turned off), maybe the multilang version
should be considered.

Also, saying this without having looked at the --with-libtool option,
do the version numbers of the ncurses library match up if using
--with-libtool and without?
