GNU libtool (version 2.4.6). 2015-06-25. Pending
Sent by email to bug-libtool@gnu.org:

I have discovered what I believe is a bug in libtool: It does not pass the “-fno-strict-aliasing” compilation flag to the link stage. This is not normally a problem, but is certainly a problem is “-flto” (link time optimization) is used. In this case code that works correct only without strict aliasing will incorrectly after being linked.

If you need any further information, please don’t hesitate to ask.
