You're also assuming here that their entire build system will be managed
by the same file; many projects have a lay out something


The bindings/* directories might share the Libtool configured by the
main project itself, yet the main project doesn't have C++ or Fortran 77

We therefore need to supply LT_LANG for these kinds of people.
