Compiling rrdtool from SVN gives the error: "ld: malformed version number: 7.999"

Is there any means to work arround this?
I have tried the command by "hand" and when I change "-current_version 7.999" to "-current_version 7.99" (or any other revision below 256), then it works...

Unfortunately I have not figured out where the "7.999" gets really calculated, so that I can patch it at its root...

Only thing that I found is that patching libtool like this:
--- libtool.orig        2012-02-20 11:03:04.000000000 +0100
+++ libtool     2012-02-20 11:01:40.000000000 +0100

it now works, but this is an ugly hack...
