It also makes libtool use -nostdlib, which is most definitely wrong
without a definition of output_verbose_link_cmd.  It appears to me
that you have simply copied the definitions from, where
output_verbose_link_cmd is set whenever the compiler is GCC. doesn't.

I suppose the right solution for this problem is to introduce, perhaps mostly as a copy of, where this
problem should already have been taken care of.  [checks...]  No, it
isn't, and this is certainly going to be a problem whenever libgcj is
ported to HP-UX.  Perhaps we could kill both problems at the same
time.  Or, ever better, we might introduce a to take care
of all languages supported by GCC in a generic way, instead of
duplicating it over all language-specific scripts.

True.  But there's certainly a reason why we don't use GCC -shared on
HP-UX; it was used on all OSs in which it worked, back in the early
days of libtool.  I wish I knew what reason it was, in the case of
HP-UX :-(
