        * libltdl/m4/ltdl.m4 (LTDL_INIT): Call _LT_ENABLE_INSTALL directly
        instead of m4_requiring it, as it relies on enable_ltdl_install
        and enable_ltdl_convenience to have been initialised first.

Why and when can this happen?

Apply all the patches in the stack leading up to (but not including)
this one, and the AC_REQUIRE tree ends up putting the expansion of
_LT_ENABLE_INSTALL before the code that sets the shell variables it

We should think about adding a test to check whether `configure' has the
order correctly here (plus maybe documentation and AC_BEFORE instances
in case there are ordering issues hidden here); but I'd like to
understand the problem first.

That sounds like a good idea, although I don't know how to write that
test :-(
