Anything that doesn't force me to explain to libtool which compiler to 
use for this single special case - only to find out it blows up anyway, 
for other reasons. :-)

I still think the only safe way is to compile impgen.c entirely outside 
the scope of a project build. The problems I've been having occur even if 
impgen is compiled first thing when the project's is 
executed, if I'm cross compiling.

That brings up another interesting point: If impgen was to be compiled 
when installing libtool, wouldn't that result in the same problem? I 
mean, impgen should only build when you're installing libtool for a cross 
compiler - and then you're in that darn cross compiler environment again! 

How would one get around that?
