Would updating the 1.6 branch using the latest libtool help (though we
may still need to use our libguile-ltdl, depending on what they've
changed), or are you saying you already did that update (hence the
large patch)?  If the latter, then did you just libtoolize to get the
latest bits of everything but libltdl, or did you merge the upstream
libltdl changes into libguile-ltdl as well?

Also do you follow libtool upstream well enough to have a sense that
libtool CVS is be stable enough for a 1.6 point release for all our
other platforms?

Unfortunately, we didn't really have an alternative.  We can still use
libtoolize to bring the guile tree up to date; we just can't use the
upstream libltdl until/unless they've fixed the important bugs.

Thanks for the help.
