How do these two bunches of problems compare?

Are the problems that libtool solves harder or easier than the ones it
introduces? How difficult is it to (portably) create and use shared
libraries? Are there any alternative tools to assist with this, that we
might consider using instead?

Or is libtool the least worst option, and we might as well stick with it?
