But consider that, if libtool creates a shell wrapper anyway, your
tests/gst setup now means it goes through two shell wrappers before
launching the real thing.  Behdad requests an optimization of this:
one shell wrapper is created, by libtool (since it may already create
one anyway).  I don't see the fact that it may sometimes be unneeded
for libtool's purposes (and only created for Behdad because he used
the env vars option) as a problem at all.

This discussion has dragged along quite a bit now.  I will try to
remain silent now until I've had time to redo the actual patch.
