Since libtool's major purpose is to allow libraries to be built using a
portable interface, perhaps it should take care of this for the developer?

So on platforms where this doesn't work, perhaps libtool should add a dummy
file implicitly, rather than the developer having to implement the bodge

This would be an obstacle to libtool creating the bodge file, but the .la
file could be extended to contain information about languages used in a
libtool library.
