Unfortunately, I don't know why this variable isn't set as standard, and 
setting it directly in the environment seemed the best solution at the
time. Could a fix be as simple as setting it in ltmain.sh (assuming it
isn't auto-generated)? My system version at /usr/share/libtool makes no
reference to this variable at all, so is it specific to GCC?
