I believe I got this workaround from this list, but the problem goes away
after changing the definition of _LT_AC_TAGCONFIG (in libtool.m4) from the
several-page routine to just:


I have been shipping my libtool-enabled software with this change (in
acinclude.m4) and can happily report ./configure does successfully complete
on machines without C++ compilers. A change like this to libtool proper's
acinclude.m4 might allow me to install libtool on such machines without
patching it first.
