Humm... I think this fix should be more generic, as it will probably affect
other packages.  (Specially many of the GNOME ones, which use very long
calls to libtool).

If it fails with GCC only, it is probably because the command line (or
whatever it is) libtool feeds to awk contains more flags than the same
line passed to mipspro...
