Is there a way to use libtool to link against a library using dlopen? I
want to be able to link against a library which may not be present at

find out whether a given library was successfully linked or not (and hence
decide whether I can execute code that uses symbols from that library).
This is a function of libltdl, which comes with libtool. I use it in
I read the documentation for libltdl before posting originally, but I
couldn't see how to do what I wanted. Can you explain, please? In
particular, I couldn't see how to link using libltdl instead of the normal
linker without changing my source.
