Currently Automake Makefiles include text like:

LTCXXCOMPILE = $(LIBTOOL) --mode=compile $(CXX) $(DEFS) \

Notice that there is no means provided to add libtool specific
options.  The only means available is for the user to cut-and-past
this chunk into their so that it overrides Automake's
default.  This has long term negative effects for Automake.

I recommend that Automake definitions which specify how libtool is
used include a place to add libtool options for that mode.  For


This way the user could specify a value for LTCXXCOMPILEOPTS and does
not need to replace the entire text.
