And thank you Dan, for confirming!  Is it ok to add your name to the THANKS

Before I tie up the lose ends with this patch, I wonder if Ralf (or someone
else) could tell me if I should also fix the other assignments of
old_archive_cmds -- such as in the below snippet -- or is that completely


      irix5* | irix6*)
        case $cc_basename in
            # SGI C++
            _LT_TAGVAR(archive_cmds, $1)='$CC -shared -all -multigot 
$predep_objects $libobjs $deplibs $postdep_objects $compiler_flags -soname 
$soname `test -n "$verstring" && func_echo_all "-set_version $verstring"` 
-update_registry ${output_objdir}/so_locations -o $lib'

            # Archives containing C++ object files must be created using
            # "CC -ar", where "CC" is the IRIX C++ compiler.  This is
            # necessary to make sure instantiated templates are included
            # in the archive.
            _LT_TAGVAR(old_archive_cmds, $1)='$CC -ar -WR,-u -o $oldlib
