Once it is clear that a new port is necessary, you'll generally need the following information:
config.guessfor this system, so that you can make changes to the libtool configuration process without affecting other systems.
If you know how to program the Bourne shell, then you can complete the port yourself; otherwise, you'll have to find somebody with the relevant skills who will do the work. People on the libtool mailing list are usually willing to volunteer to help you with new ports, so you can send the information to them.
To do the port yourself, you'll definitely need to modify the
libtool.m4 macros in order to make platform-specific changes to
the configuration process. You should search that file for the
PORTME keyword, which will give you some hints on what you'll
need to change. In general, all that is involved is modifying the
appropriate configuration variables (see libtool script contents).
Your best bet is to find an already-supported system that is similar to
yours, and make your changes based on that. In some cases, however,
your system will differ significantly from every other supported system,
and it may be necessary to add new configuration variables, and modify
ltmain.in script accordingly. Be sure to write to the
mailing list before you make changes to
ltmain.in, since they may
have advice on the most effective way of accomplishing what you want.
