When the tag is CXX, CC = `your favorite C++ compiler, aka $CXX`
Make sure your project actually has the latest libtool in it,
and instead of hacking the generated libtool, submit a pach
to libtool.m4 that supports your compiler.  It is easier in the
long run.

Subject: Using HEAD, still CXX is not used to link C++ libs

I have been using libtool on i686-gnu-linux and HPUX 11.0 for C++ programs.
With the addition of a few hacks (use CXX to link for both platforms, numerous
tweaks for HPUX) to the generated libtool, it has been working ok for simple

Hearing recently on the list that C++ will be officially supported soon by
libtool, I checked out HEAD to see how the progress was coming.  I took out my
m4 macros that hack libtool,  and I discover that CC is _still_ being used to
link shared libraries:

gcc -shared .libs/   -Wl,-soname -Wl,
-o .libs/

Is there something I need to do to turn on C++ support?  Or is C++ support
still unofficial/broken?  Have I done something stupid?

I apologize if this question is inappropriate for this list (if it is, please
indicate where it should be asked).

I'm using libtool with autoconf/automake, with AC_LANG(C++):

cs128:i686/debug> autoconf --version
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.52
cs128:i686/debug> ./libtool --version (GNU libtool) 1.4e (1.1128 2002/07/31 20:31:13)
cs128:i686/debug> automake --version
automake (GNU automake) 1.6.3
