I think DOLT is messing with the setting of LTCOMPILE, which is the
part that's not getting used. Oh, it looks like dolt does an
AC_SUBST(LTCOMPILE), however, libtool normally puts the LTCOMPILE
setting in make through automake. When you run configure, LTCOMPILE
never gets set, and configure substitutes an empty LTCOMPILE setting
in the Makefile. The AC_SUBST overrides the default setting from
libtool, which was not the intended effect.

That's bad of dolt and breaks the build for any platform where it's
not supported. What's the output of `grep LTCOMPILE fc-arch/Makefile'?

If you want to "fix" this, you'll need the autotools. Comment out the
DOLT line in configure.in and then run autoreconf.
