I'm not sure why this is a problem, if you don't have a "g++" tag
configured, but already have "c++", then libtool will just ignore the
"c++" tag and rebuild an identical one for "g++".  I'll admit this isn't
beautiful, but I think it is better than a single line of code that
would require maintenance or could cause a bug at some point.

Or perhaps I am missing the point... (?)
