No, that is the syntax for the libtool command line.


Link mode

   "Link" mode links together object files (including library objects)
to form another library or to create an executable program.

   MODE-ARGS consist of a command using the C compiler to create an
output file (with the `-o' flag) from several object files.


So using g++ here is just part of the calling convention for libtool.  Once
invoked, libtool will "do the right thing", which is not necessarily to run
