One step closer: in the testsuite log, one sees the following: the two
configure scripts (the one for the toplevel test package, and the one for
the enclosed libltdl), each choose different programs for $INSTALL. The
reason for the difference is likely that, for the toplevel test package,
your system's autoconf is run, whereas libltdl/configure is as shipped
with the Libtool tarball (though I don't yet know and haven't checked what
exactly caused this difference).

Now, in that test, the toplevel configure script chooses
$top_srcdir/INSTALL (yes, the text file) as install script.  I suspect
this is because you have /uhome/src/gnu/libtool-head in the $PATH, the
beginning of testsuite.log reveals that.  Why is that, did you add that
