# This script is designed to be used from a Makefile that uses libtool
# to build libraries as follows: 
#
#   LTLDFLAGS = $(shell libtool-ldflags $(LDFLAGS))
#
# Then, use (LTLDFLAGS) in place of $(LDFLAGS) in your link line.

# The output of the script.  This string is built up as we process the
# arguments.

	    # think these options are linker options, and prefix them
	    # with "-Wl,".  Then, the compiler driver will ignore the
	    # options.  So, we prefix these options with -Xcompiler to
	    # make clear to libtool that they are in fact compiler
	    # options.  Similarly for e.g. -static-libstdc++, or
	    # -B/some/path.

    # libtool.   In other words, when this script was invoked, the shell
