IIRC this warning was fixed a loooong time ago.  Which would likely
mean that you are trying to recompile an obsolete by few years
release instead of sources you have to retrieve from repositories
(currently svn, I believe).

I recall bumping into that at some moment and failing to
comprehend mysteries of libtool.  Most likely there is a better
way to solve that but I worked around.  Here are corresponding
lines from my spec file for rep-gtk:

make %{?_smp_mflags} host_type=%{_target_platform} \
    'rep_LIBTOOL = $(repcommonexecdir)/libtool --tag=CXX'

AFAIK libtool is supposed to figure out that CXX by itself
but in some circumstances it does not.
