Yes, this is the libtool bug I referred to. Libtool-1.5 *requires* that the --tag=XXX parameter be present, when using any language other than C. However, libtool-1.5 neglects to *record* that value in the uninstalled .la file, for use when relinking-to-install.

However, libtool-1.4.x doesn't really support ANY language other than C at all, so it doesn't work (or only works via luck; I haven't tried) in the c++ directory either.

So, it's a libtool-1.5 bug. I'll be reporting it to the libtool list when I take care of a few other things. I might even be able to come up with a patch...
