Could you post the complete error message?  Is it because of struct dirent?
I can't see what that should be conflicting with.  Please also post
config.log (packed).

Sure.  But you should note that libltdl is useful for static-only hosts
too: it can use preopening to emulate modules.  So you want libltdl to
work on RDOS, too.  And we want the compile to finish in order to be
able to run the test suite.

Please make sure that the preopen module loader is selected and built.

OK, well you are certainly free to choose the order yourself (I applied
your patch so that you can proceed), all I'm trying is to help you get
decent libtool support right from the start, so you don't have to worry
about this again.
