Thanks for the report.  Gary fixed the code to use
single-quotes.  If there are some leftovers, please

The patch is against git 79d9801 2009-12-25

Libtool seems to output text in US-convention:

libtoolize: putting auxiliary files in `.'.
libtoolize: copying file `./'
libtoolize: Consider adding `AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR([m4])' to and


For output display ofr international context the double quotes would work better (backquotes are not used in Asia, Europe). The double quotes would also be shell friendly in a way that the text is cut-n-paste ready, whereas backquotes are a little problematic (a shell metacharacter).

The following patch would be start to change the output would change to:

libtoolize: putting auxiliary files in ".".
libtoolize: copying file "./"
libtoolize: Consider adding "AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR([m4])" to and

Please consider including it.
