I believe that all of this stuff is already handled in the libtool CVS
multi-language branch, commonly referred to as the "MLB."  However, I
do have some questions below.

I've never needed to use the "-ptrPIC" flag, especially since I didn't
know that it existed.  Is it really needed?  Things seem to work okay
for my software without it.

MLB already does this, too.
