Ok. I didn't know that. Thanks for this info.
>> libtool: install: /bin/bash /home/mandeep/work/dbus/install-sh -c -s

Well, here's the catch...this file is not present at the said
location!! :) Looks like something that's created in the
'install-strip' step (though seems unlikely).

Will check again.
