Gary second suggestion worked after removing the back slashes:

CXX="${SHELL-/bin/sh} ${srcdir}/libtool $CXX"

It seems ok as looking at the config.log it's a one liner which does both
the compile and link in one go.  As such it's correctly converting the
library dependecies on it.  Btw, what would be your solution?
