Thank You! for carrying this through until the end!  The timing is
really at the last minute, before this becomes a regression in a
released version.

As far as I can see it, the semantic change of the above patch is that,
before the patch, _LT_SYS_MODULE_PATH_AIX computed the libpath value for
each compiler separately, while now it is done only once, by the C
compiler, and that result reused for the others.  A quick test reveals
that the different compilers add different directories to their path.

Now, The Right Thing[tm] would probably be to somehow merge these paths
intelligently, so that when we link C, C++, and Fortran code together,
all directories are available.  However, at this point I'm *only*
interested in avoiding *regressions* and still keeping the
no-executables issue fixed.

Thus, the attached patch uses, in addition to a global cache variable
(that the user may specify), a set of per-language cache variables.
(The trailing space in the tagvar name is because the CC tagvar has no
_CC suffix, but should not overlap with the global name.)

I'm running it on the AIX systems I have access to now.

Rainer, can you please try it on your problematic system, too, ASAP?

OK to commit?
