Libtool elder than 2.2 creates configure script that defines ECHO but
uses $echo, which is undefined. Apparently there is no other problem,
however. So while libtool-2.2 was masked in Gentoo for problems wih many
other packages I simply used an elder version, and then called sed to
downcase ECHO in the generated configure. Heimdal then built and tested
I think I've even reported that already, haven't I?
