Yup, I even thought about it in this case; you could just check that LINK is
still smart_link after the intelc tool runs. But it's a better end-to-end
check that nothing *else* is wrong to actually compile and link a C++ program.
 In theory could could run both tests; the LINK value test to make sure the
bug doesn't reappear, and the end-to-end one to make sure linking C++ progs
works as intended no matter what else has changed. But that seemed like more
work than necessary, at least to me.
