Sorry, but I don't like this one. Does libtool *really* need to run
ld directly? That seems ill advised to me. It's usually better to
just run gcc.
libtool needs to *know* what linker is being used -- but (at least on
cygwin) it doesn't link using ld. It uses gcc.
But, libtool.m4 does cause configure.in/configure to test ld's
characteristics during configure -- and you want those tests to be
performed on the correct ld.
