[Mono-devel-list] [PATCH] detect libtool more flexibly

Zoltan had commited the patch but I found it didn't work
properly on HPUX because 'which' for the default sh
doesn't set return codes properly. I have commited
a tweaked version which checks if $LIBTOOL is
executable after searching for glibtool instead.

I hope this works OK on all platforms.
