Dear libtool experts,

I'm the author of a C++ Apache module which uses an Apache-supplied libtool in its build process.

Some time ago people started reporting the "unable to infer tagged configuration" error from libtool. It seemed to depend on particular distribution / version issues, but I never saw it myself. Someone worked out that the solution was to add "--tag=CXX", but I don't know how they worked that out since I have never found any documentation for this mysterious --tag option.

For quite a few years now, Automake has provided the --tag= option automatically. The --tag option tells libtool which language tool (C, C++, Fortran) is currently in use so the correct options are used. Otherwise it would have to guess based on the name of the tool and guessing is hard. Is Apache using Automake?
