Now that I've been doing some looking, I see that there is also a
bundled -ltdl in the source tree.  I'm not aware of any license issues
with libtool (although as it's an FSF project, I wouldn't be surprised
to see it move to v3 in the future).  Is this just a convenience copy,
or is because of a license problem I'm unaware of?

If it's just a convenience copy, can we give it the same treatment, and
preferentially use the system copy?  It'll probably mean patching the
version of the ltdl m4 that you have in favor of something that doesn't
produce totally broken make targets when you try to get it to use the
system libtool.

Currently, if you pass --with-ltdl-dir=/usr/lib, it add -L/usr/lib as
a preprequisite, and if you pass --with-ltdl-dir=/usr/lib/libltdl.la,
configure goes off and looks for /usr/lib/libltdl.la/libltdl.la and
doesn't find it and exits.
