Hey, at least you actually attached the patch and it was valid :-)

So a canonical form of:

LT_INIT_LIBTOOL([C C++], [disable-shared no-pic])

I've deliberately made the tags the first argument there, as I think
people are more likely to specify tags than options.

Or perhaps split it out a little further:

LT_INIT_LIBTOOL([disable-shared no-pic])

Automake couldn't directly steal LT_LANG_SUPPORT or the first argument
though.  I'm quite determined that we should allow real language names
rather than just tags for it, just as Autoconf itself does.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
