The general idea looks fine to me.  Unless other libtool distro
maintainers disagree, I'd like to see this in branch-1-5 (and then in
branch-2-0 and HEAD as well).

Shouldn't we come up with a more general solution first? Embedding
knowledge of a specific compiler in is wrong. That's what
libtool.m4 is for.

Is there general consensus of this patch as a model for other
platforms (Solaris, Linux with non-GCC compilers, IRIX, etc.)? It
seems way too Linux-specific to me.

I agree with Albert's statements above. However, my own opinion is that only bug-fixes should appear in branch-1-5 and this smells like a new feature to me. Since branch-2-0 has not yet produced a release, we can consider adding the feature to branch-2-0 if there is someone dedicated to implementing the feature correctly within the next month.
