about the particular compiler.  It makes me wonder if we need to
have a per-compiler libtool or if we need to somehow build a new
libtool each time a libtool-using package is built.

I've added this to my todo-list for the new wrapper framework.


Thanks. I wonder if the new wrapper framework will also somehow provide a wrapped compiler for packages like octave to use at run time in case they want to compile some plugins.

Is there anything written up about the new wrapper framework? I've been pretty out of touch lately...
