Aha!  So, it turns out that the current situation had nothing at all
to do with libtool.  The whole issue was on how to pass -shared-libgcc
to the link command issued by libtool, and the implications of doing
so for other systems.

Ok, I'll give you that libtool made this non-optimal by requiring such
flag to already be present at its configuration time, which is what
confused RTH.  IMO, this may be addressed in future releases of
libtool.  But hey! if this is all you have to count in as `undoing
libtool's abstraction', then it seems that you're pretty satisfied
with it :-)
