Yes, more generic would be good.  But how?

Most likely, though given the large number of files that are linked, I
would think it to be odd that the maybe 30 chars of flags would make the
difference.  Either way, you're right, if it can be done more
generically, it should.  But I'm not sure where or how other than having
libtool use (and depend on) gawk (for IRIX or other platforms where this
is an issue).
