Those two things would benefit when Guile explicitely declares as a

.deb or .rpm is not to contain libltdl but to depend on the package
that contains libltdl.

For the record, now that we don't need customizations, I don't have
any problem with dropping our copy of libltdl.  Alhough I agree that
it would be good to have a clear configure error message when libltdl
is not detected.

That's my view too. Perhaps I'm spoilt by being a Debian user, but if other OS's don't have a decent package system, they really ought to sort that out.
