  Well, the idea is for libtool to abstract away all the dependencies and
spare us having to know which flags to set for which host, it should probably
be considered a bug that one option has these two incompatible semantics.  I
can't see any simple way to change it now without breaking existing makefiles
though.  (Well, except if we made -no-undefined *not* mean the same thing as
not giving a -undefined option, but /only/ mean 'build a dll on windows'; but
it would be really illogical if there was a -no- option that wasn't the
opposite of it's plain form.)

  Yep.  Feel free to file me a PR mentioning both that and lto-plugin if you
like, I plan to fix it during this stage3.
