Well, if you don't stick -B in $CXX, for example, then the configure
tests will likely cause the wrong (i.e., the ones found without -B)
$postdeps and $postdep_objects to be computed for creation of C++ shared
libraries.  In that way, it is not helpful to pass through -B at link
time, you need to stick it in $CXX.
