Well, environment variables like `ECHO' are not really standardized in
any way.  One could argue that it is as much a bug in Libtool to honor
it as it is in whatever other software packages you use.

FYI, within branch-2-0 and HEAD Libtool versions we moved to using
lt_ECHO instead of ECHO, which should have a much smaller chance of
collision with other software.
