Reorganise the libtool tree to create a bootstrapped libltdl for

      not installed on the developers machine.  Part of this change
      requires some duplication of rules between (which
      builds libltdl for this distribution) and libltdl/
      (which is used by projects that libltoolize --ltdl --copy), so
libtool now really does use a single toplevel, and we
      generate libltdl/ from that:

So the result of this is code under libltdl that has nothing to do
with libltdl (ltmain.m4sh, libtool.m4, etc.)? Seems kinda odd.

It has everything to do with libltdl! Libtoolize goes to some pain (less pain than before with the new structure) to make sure all those files are
added to your project, with the correct timestamps when you invoke
libtoolize --ltdl.  It was odd having them under CVS in different places
to where they are when you import a libltdl tree into your project!
