[tex-live] Build issues: lcdf-typetools should probably be libtoolized

When creating a static library with C++ objects on IRIX, you're
supposed to use 'CC -ar -o lib.a' instead or 'ar cr lib.a'.  Otherwise
the library objects are not "prelinked", which means that templates
used just in the library do not get instantiated, and the build fails
on undefined symbols.

For my build I fixed this by putting in suitable definitions for AR
and AFLAGS in lcdf-typetools/{libefont,liblcdf}/Makefile after
configure had run.

It looks like current libtool gets this right, so completely
libtoolizing lcdf-typetools is probably a better fix.
