There were bugs in libltdl (serious ones) that were stalled upstream
for a long time.  Since then, I believe all of them have been fixed,
so our code is now essentially identical to upstream libtool.
However, we'll need to discuss what to do next because there's still
the possiblity that we might want to add a versioned dlopen to our
copy, and that the upstream libtool developers wouldn't be interested.

Should be by next week (perhaps later this week).  There were some
fixes I noticed last week that had to go in, and then I had to go out
of town.  I'm now finishing an update of the debian/ tree and then I
think it'll be ready.
