After getting a libtool update to libtool-base-1.4.20010614nb5 from pkgsrc, many packages refuse to build, because the new libtool only recognizes c++ as a tagged configuration.  For cc-based packages, the error is

libtool: link: unable to infer tagged configuration
Install new libtool, as above
Attempt to build gmake (or another package) from pkgsrc
Added a CC tagged configuration to libtool, using cc instead of g++.  Appears to work, but not sure how many other configuration changes I should be making.
