Yes, that was the 'annoying bit'.  I checked and found that most
changes in ./upstream had been merged into libtool already.  It went
something like:

patching file ltdl.c
Hunk #3 succeeded at 124 (offset 32 lines).
Hunk #4 FAILED at 192.
Hunk #5 succeeded at 389 (offset 54 lines).
Hunk #6 FAILED at 435.
Hunk #7 succeeded at 478 with fuzz 2 (offset 51 lines).
Hunk #8 FAILED at 870.
Hunk #9 FAILED at 2036.
Hunk #10 FAILED at 2782.
Hunk #11 FAILED at 3048.
Hunk #12 FAILED at 3075.
7 out of 12 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file ltdl.c.rej


The only sensible change that was not yet in, as far as I could see,
was to avoid a type warning:

-      dest[i] = src[i];
+      ((char *) dest)[i] = ((char *) src)[i];

With the next version of libtool, I merely updated ltdl.c and ltdl.h
from libtool CVS, as were in the previous patch I sent.  Attached
seperately now.

No, I just updated when requested for new Cygwin packages.  With
libtool+Cygwin it's been: fresher checkouts, more stable ;-)

Maybe best to ask the libtool developers.  1.5.1 was released on
August 8, and there was only one Cygwin patch after that, so upgrading
to that would already help a lot.

You mean one can do 'libtoolize' but not 'libtoolize --ltdl', but that
doesn't help me.
