i'm fairly certain libtool used to do this aaaaaaaaaages ago, and i *think*
it stopping was intentional.  i recall a lot of pain in Gentoo from that
switchup, but tbh, i don't think any of it was "wrong" ... all the fixes we
landed were because the code was being misused/abused, and silently doing
the wrong thing (especially when cross-compiling).  so i personally prefer
the new world order, and would say we should lobby for the manual to change
rather than rollback the behavior.
