Ouch, not being much of a libtool user myself, I hadn't noticed that.

We could consider configuring shared libraries without libtool. That's
what I do in Nettle (which uses neither libtool nor automake), see
It hasn't been that much hassle to maintain, but may well be inferior to
libtool in some ways.

Or are there any useful configure helpers in the gnulib package?
