[Mono-dev] libtool problem cross compiling

I am trying to cross compile mono onto another x86 linux distribution and I
am having a problem with libtool inserting wrong library paths.  An example
is in mono/metadata where libtool converts the command line

/bin/sh ../../libtool --tag=CC   --mode=link 586-gcc  -g -O2
-fno-strict-aliasing -Wdeclaration-after-statement -g -Wall -Wunused
-Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations -Wstrict-prototypes 
-Wmissing-prototypes -Wnested-externs -Wpointer-arith -Wno-cast-qual
-Wcast-align -Wwrite-strings -mno-tls-direct-seg-refs   -o pedump pedump.o
libmonoruntime.la ../io-layer/libwapi.la ../utils/libmonoutils.la
../../libgc/libmonogc.la -pthread
-L/opt/montavista/pro/devkit/x86/586/target/usr/lib -lgthread-2.0 -lglib-2.0  
-lm -ldl -lpthread -lm


586-gcc -g -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -Wdeclaration-after-statement -g -Wall
-Wunused -Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations -Wstrict-prototypes
-Wmissing-prototypes -Wnested-externs -Wpointer-arith -Wno-cast-qual
-Wcast-align -Wwrite-strings -mno-tls-direct-seg-refs -o pedump pedump.o
-pthread  ./.libs/libmonoruntime.a ../io-layer/.libs/libwapi.a
../utils/.libs/libmonoutils.a ../../libgc/.libs/libmonogc.a
/usr/lib/libgthread-2.0.so /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so -ldl -lpthread -lm

note the /usr/lib in front of libglib2.0 and libgthread-2.0 . The problem is
something to do with the .0 extension to the lib filenamesas the other lib
filenames have been handled correctly.
I am currently using libtool version 1.5.24 (1.1220.2.455 2007/06/24
02:13:29) on openSUSE 10. 
Does anyone know of any solutions to this problem or of a libtool version
that they know works.
