It was a year ago now and I don't recall the exact problem it was
highlighting at the time, but a quick grep through the libtool source shows
that this form of line is used for things like:

libtool: link: symbol file `x' does not exist
libtool: link: cannot find the library `x'

A few warnings actually say warning:, like this:

libtool: link: warning: complete static linking is impossible in this configuration

Perhaps a regex could be devised to show libtool: link: lines except those
that match the known benign ones such as are now cropping up.
