That is how it works right now.  I am not happy about the fact that
Guile does this silently and that it is a configure decision that
persists in the build tree.

What I would be happy with is to include a copy of libltdl in the
Guile distribution but to have it completely ignored by configure and
the Makefiles.  When libltdl is not found in the system, a message
could be printed that instructs the user to install libltdl, maybe by
using the included sources.
