problem with read-only helper script directory

Hi, I'm using libtool to build a shared library and some programs which
use it.  Very plain-vanilla usage, and no particular problems.

EXCEPT -- if the directory tree holding the generated helper scripts for
the programs is not writable, you can't execute the helper scripts
because you get errors like

        /usr/bin/ld: cannot open output
 Permission denied
        collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Is there a way to tell libtool to write the helper scripts so that they
put their temporary files in /tmp, like everyone else, rather than
assuming (!) the directory which contains the helper script will always
be writable?
