The branch of libtool that supports --tag has been totally untouched
in cvs for at least two years.  It doesn't work for mips{,el}-linux

I'm aware that it's exteremely fragile, and the effects it has. 
However, gcc 3.2/3.3 doesn't build properly on Linux/mips{,el} without
doing something to address this.  Specifically, libstdc++ and libf2c don't
have their dependencies specified at linktime, because libtool can't figure
out that there are shared libraries available.  If people think fixing the
unmaintained libtool is a better option for 3.2/3.3, I can look at that
