BSD libtool: still an actual topic?[edit]

The article has a reference to “BSD-licensed libtool”. This link is broken. Trying to fix it, I could not find its new location and wonder if whether or not there still is a BSD libtool. If some one know about it, please tell, so that either the link can be fixed or the reference can be removed. --Hibou57 (talk) 04:49, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

-- Here it is a year later ... I tried that link and got a Perl script with no documentation that I am guessing sort-of semi-replaces the gnu libtool. If I were God, I'd remove this reference, since it is apparently useless. 210.22.142.82 (talk) 03:16, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi Anonymous :-p . I had a quick look, and although there is no documentation, this really seems to be the OpenBSD libtool, which is indeed known to be Perl implemented: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4407486 . May be the documentation belongs to a separate set of files. There must be a manpage about libtool in OpenBSD. P.S. Yes, I know about the numerous Wikipedia's issues, and that's why I'm contributing less and less (even not any more at all since some time). --Hibou57 (talk) 09:22, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
