dnl Libtool tries to compile an empty file to see whether it can build
dnl shared libraries, and treats *any* warning as a problem.
dnl Solaris's and HP's cc complains about the empty file.  So we hack
dnl the CFLAGS to make cc not complain.

  case "$host_os" in

      save_cflags="${CFLAGS}"
      CFLAGS="-w"
