I've looked at this again, and, to tell you the truth, I don't believe
my original proposal is making matters much worse, given that I think a
clean fix would require quite a bit of work.

To put it another way: I would like permission to apply my patch as
proposed originally, to branch-2-0 and HEAD.  Evolution of
AC_LIBTOOL_LINKER_OPTION rather shows a trend away from encoding
language specifics in there, and I would love to be able to keep it that
way.  Also note that the Automake variables we use (ac_compile, for
example) work exactly the same way.

This patch is a predependence for another couple of patches I work on.

These two questions (first about published interface implied) have not
been answered.

For the record: the proposed patch is[1].
