Does it matter how this could interact with:

./configure CC=gcc
./libtool mycc file.c -o file.lo -lpopt

Doing the check for $CC -print-file-name per invocation allows that to be
skipped (even if gcc is used as the C compiler at configure time), whereas
doing the check at configure time could cause ./libtool invoked with another
compiler to resolve paths incorrectly.

of application to any particular. -- Eric Temple Bell, Mathematician
