I've now found out that it *is* a libtool problem:

This warning message caused by this line in `libtool', in function

  darwin_files=`find unfat-$$ -name $darwin_file -print | sort | $NL2SP`

It searches for file names in the directory `unfat-$$'.  However, if
the value of `foo_LIBADD' contains a subdirectory, as in

  libharfbuzz_la_LIBADD = hb-ucdn/libhb-ucdn.la

this fails, since `$darwin_file' now contains something with slashes.
