The cause is a combination of this package's configure.in exploiting bugs in
the ancient versions of the autotools the original upstream author had used and
incompatibilities of this package's configuration with libtool-2.

I am going to attach a patch, which should fix this issue.

Further remarks:

- Upstream *.zip is called FreeSOLID => According to Fedora's package
conventions, this package should be called FreeSOLID and not free-solid.

- Similar wrt. the *.pc. I don't see any reason why this addition should be
called "free-solid.pc" and not be called FreeSOLID.pc.

- Why is freesolid-config removed?
It's upstream's nomial config tool other packages could be relying upon.
