There is a new problem that appears at least in graphics/glu and causes
graphics/gle's configure to fail later.

When linking libGLU with libtool-1.5.6 (and otherwise up-to-date mk/),
one can find the following lines in work*/.work.log:
<.> /usr/pkg/bin/libtool --mode=link g++ -o ...
[*] /usr/obj/graphics/glu/work.i386/.wrapper/bin/g++ -shared -nostdlib ...

while with libtool-1.5.10, they become:
<.> /usr/pkg/bin/libtool --mode=link g++ -o ...
[*] /usr/obj/graphics/glu/work/.wrapper/bin/gcc -shared ...

which has the effect that is not linked against libstdc++
and libgcc_s. This makes gle fails when it tries to link against libGLU
in its configure script, since it uses gcc to test and gcc does not
automatically add libstdc++ nor libgcc_s to the link line.

Could you please take a look at this?
