The path of least resistance is to use the GCC -Wl, or -Wc, syntax to pass options to the linker or compiler, respectively. This already works well with Autoconf, Automake, and libtool.

Adding support to libtool to support particular GCC options is the path of greatest resistance.

Compiler and linker options tend to expand continually, and it is not reasonable to support them all.
