Yes, 1.6 will include a facility for specifying which languages to
configure libtool for.  There was a judgement call not to add it to
1.5.2 since it is a new feature.

In my opinion, this is the most grevious existing libtool bug.  The
problem is that Autoconf's /lib/cpp tests abort configure if /lib/cpp
fails.  However, it may be seen that this is really an Autoconf bug
since Autoconf should only require cpp to work for a language if a
header is actually tested for in that language.  Libtool does not test
for any headers using C++ (as far as I am aware).
