The whole idea is libtool overkill.

This statement is a little "over the top". Why are you so vehemently against extending libtool's wrapper for this?

Certainly it is a bit more work for the libtool project (particularly adding a wrapper for static binaries) but I can't think of any technical reason not to support it via environment variables only, as we already do with some other environment variables. It would help if an interested party were to submit a patch, along with signing the necessary paperwork with the FSF so it can be accepted.

We should add it to the TODO list for libtool 2.3.


P.S. What's up with the vanity domain names? :-)
