Indeed.  But it will only be ignored in libtool up to 1.3.4, and even
then, only when creating shared libraries, not when linking
executables.  In the next major release of libtool, -Wl and -Xlinker
will be supported, and will arrange for libtool to pass flags to the
linker (even if it calls the linker directly, instead of through the
compiler), and -Wc and -Xcompiler will be supported to do the
equivalent job of passing arguments to the compiler driver, unless it
is not used at all.

Sounds good.
