If you'd like to take a look at it, I can send you the failing libtool
script. It didn't seem malformed to me, but, as I mentioned before, I'm a
libtool newbie. Basically, the script was checking "$base_compile"
against "$CC", and it was using "$CXX" (i.e., g++) instead. Don't know
how significant this is.
Come to think of it, this could also have something to do with the fact
that I've had the autotool-generated files for a while, and they are
likely generated by an older version of autotools (but not that old --
"configure" and "Makefile.in" are dated Feb 1; I believe I had automake
1.7.1 back then).
