How do I get libtool to use g++?
I recently had a bug (193950) filed against one of my packages because the
shared libraries had "undefined non-weak symbols" - libstdc++ was not being
linked in. I resolved it with what I consider a gruesome hack. I discovered
that forcing libtool to use g++ while linking would automatically link in
libstdc++. The hack came about because I could not figure out how to get
libtool to use g++ instead of gcc. So, I did
sed -e 's/CC="gcc"/CC="g++"/g' libtool > lt.tmp && mv -f lt.tmp libtool
to force it. What's the right way to get libstdc++ linked in to shared
libraries of C++ code? The package uses autoconf, automake, libtool, etc.
