absolutely. the build of libtool embeds compiler-specific flags/paths
in the resulting libtool script, so if you switch compilers, you
should always rebuild libtool-base with the new compiler. I've had to
do this countless times on Solaris when switching between compilers.

the MESSAGE should really be in libtool-base/, imho, and stated
clearly in the documentation, too. switching compilers from !pkgsrc
also incurs the same "problem", so a MESSAGE in compiler pkgs won't
catch every case.
