Yes.  Known bug, fixed properly in branch-2-0.  Unfortunately I don't
know of a clean workaround for branch-1-5, and we have a handful of
patches (at least, and one of them tricky) that need to go into
branch-2-0 before we can release the next 2.0alpha, and then hopefully
2.0 soon after that.  Sorry.

Can't the changes from 0.15.0 to 0.16.2 that broke the CXX check just be
reverted? I'm probably thinking too simplisticly.

Will 2.0 be fully backwards compatible with packages that are designed
for the older libtools (0.15, 0.16, 0.17)?
