I don't see this one in your ChangeLog?

Merging upstream changes from libtool that unbreak bootstrap on a
primary platform and are completely specific and isolated to that
platform should always be fine.

You did not indicate how you tested it, but assuming a full bootstrap
and testsuite run (which platform exactly?) please go ahead.

This is a separate change from the libtool import, right?  Ever since

        Move to the unsupported targets list.

GCC per se does not support FreeBSD 2.x any more.  On the libtool side,
we should stick with what we get from upstream.  For other things, like
the above, I suggest to remove both 1 and 2.

Can you also make the libjava change on trunk, copying java-patches@ ?
