Ok, any libtool library would do it, due to an ill effect of (some)

My understanding is that, if an exported variable is modified in a
shell script, the modified value is not supposed to be automatically
re-exported.  It should be kept private to the script.

It appears that IRIX's /bin/sh doesn't agree with my understanding, so
this work around was necessary.  Ideally, libtool shouldn't mess up
with LD, but I'd rather not touch this at this point.

This patch sucessfully bootstrapped the gcc 3.1 branch on
mips-sgi-irix6.5, and lt_cv_path_LD in both multilibs' config.cache
contained exactly the original value of LD, not the one modified by

Mark, ok for 3.1?
