I'm OK with dumping libguile-ltdl altogether in 1.7, if we don't think
we're going to pursue enhancements anytime soon. We can always add it
back later, and a --disable-libguile-ltdl option sounds like it might
be a reasonable way to handle the problem in 1.6 if the fix for
libguile-ldtl for cygwin is too hard.
Although if it's just cygwin, and if libguile-ltdl has *never* worked
there, then another alternative might be to just disable it when
cygwin is detected.
Ideally though, I'd still much rather just have a fix for
libguile-ltdl on cygwin if that were possible, and not too difficult.
