  With adding -x to all the wrapper indirections, I finally figured
out what went wrong: libtool is using /bin/sh, a very bad idea on
Solaris.  Using pdksh fixes the problem.

: Did you compile libtool itself with GCC? This means that libtool doesn't
: know the command and therefore which language you are using.

No, everything was built using pkgsrc and Sun Pro.  However, libtool
has gcc recorded as C compiler:

$ grep gcc /usr/pkg/bin/libtool

  This works well when using pkgsrc's use of libtool (which always
presents a gcc through the wrapper framework), but using libtool
outside of pkgsrc might run into problems, since then the compiler is
called ``cc''.
