Okay, I checked out 'multi-language-branch', and diff'ed the file
doc/libtool.texi.  There are lots of differences!

At the section in question, however, there is simply the addition
of the following note.

    @emph{NOTE}: The problems described in this section may no longer
    relevant due to the @samp{libtool} multi-language support.  To
    enable C++ support in libtool, use the @code{AC_LIBTOOL_CXX} macro
    in your @file{} file.

Since the note is written in the conditional voice, I don't really
know what to make of it.  Are the problems relevant or not?

Am I okay as long as the library has no static variables?  If so, is
that true of the released libtool?


P.S.  Perhaps the note needs revision: elsewhere in the docs, I see
that you don't really need AC_LIBTOOL_CXX, as long as AC_PROG_CXX is
