From a Debian point of view, at least, we need to ensure that
/usr/bin/libtool supports invoking the C++ compiler as "c++" as well as
"g++" etc.

At the moment, this is done with nasty sed, but it would be nice if we
could simply add to

LT_TAG([BINCC], [CC]) # Copy CC to make BINCC
LT_TAG_SET([BINCC], [CC], [cc]) # Set BINCC's CC variable

LT_TAG([BINCXX], [CXX]) # Copy CXX to make BINCXX
LT_TAG_SET([BINCXX], [CC], [c++]) # Set BINCXX's CC variable

There's also various changes to other variables that different people
feel the need to make.  We may as well at least support them doing so,
with the disclaimer that it's an "advanced" interface that's subject to

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
