There is code in m4/libtool.m4 that assumes that macOS version numbers are of the form 10.*, and darwin version numbers are of the form darwin1*

The latest macOS release is macOS 11.0.1 and it corresponds to the darwin20 kernel. So, this code breaks.

The patch at
is confirmed to work very well, allowing to build complex software that was failing before, such as open-mpi.

Please apply this patch to git
