This table lists platforms and toolchains known to be supported by Libtool. Each row represents completion of the self test suite shipped with the Libtool distribution on the platform named in that row.

There is a ‘PLATFORMS’ file maintained in the Libtool source tree, updated whenever a Libtool user volunteers updated information, or when the Libtool team runs pre-release tests on the platforms to which they individually have access.

The table from the latest source tree at the time of writing follows:

canonical host name

This is the configuration triplet returned by config.guess on each system for which the test suite was executed. Where the developer who ran the tests considered it to be significant, versions of tools in the compiler toolchain are named below the configuration triplet.


The compiler used for the tests.

libtool release

The version number of the Libtool distribution most recently tested for the associated configuration triplet. The GNU Autotools all use an alpha version numbering system where ‘odd’ letters (a, c, e, g etc.) represent many CVS snapshots between the ‘even’ lettered (b, d, f etc) alpha release versions. After version 1.4, the CVS revision number of the ‘Changelog’ file will be appended to odd lettered CVS snapshots, ‘1.4a 1.641.2.54’, for example.


Either ‘ok’ if the Libtool test suite passed all tests, or optionally ‘NS’ if the test suite would only pass when the distribution was configured with the ‘--disable-shared’ option.

- "ok" means "all tests passed".
- "NS" means "Not Shared", but OK for static libraries

You too can contribute to this file, either if you use a platform which is missing from the table entirely, or if you are using a newer release of Libtool than the version listed in the table. From a freshly unpacked release, do the following:

$ cd libtool-1.4
$ ./configure

Configuring libtool 1.4a (1.641.2.54 2000/06/18 03:02:52)

checking host system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
checking build system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
$ make
$ make check
All 76 tests passed

If there are no test failures, and you see a message similar to the above, send a short message to libtool@gnu.org stating what you did and the configuration triplet for your platform as reported for the ‘host system’ by configure (see the example directly above), and the precise version number of the release you have tested as reported by ‘libtool --version’:

$ pwd
$ ./libtool --version
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.4a (1.641.2.41 2000/05/29 10:40:46)

The official ‘PLATFORMS’ file will be updated shortly thereafter.
