Gentle libtool maintainers,

While reading libtool.m4, I noticed that there are two spellings of the var=
iable "old_archive_from_new_cmds". Most references to this variable use low=
er-case letters. But 3 references, all within "os2" sections, refer to the =
variable as "old_archive_From_new_cmds". Note the capital "F".

Perhaps the OS/2 shell is case-insensitive and this typo doesn't matter in =
the OS/2 environment. But I still think it should be corrected, because any=
one searching for all references to "old_archive_from_new_cmds" will overlo=
ok the 3 references made by the os2 configuration code.

Sincerely,
Paul Green
Sr. Technical Consultant (Retired)
Stratus Technologies, Inc.
