OK, even better, although I have a hard time seeing whether this works
in all cases..

D'oh.  Thank you, I overlooked that!

OK, fine with me.

I have a couple of gripes with it:
- First, LTCOMPILE is not published interface by Automake,
- Second, you kill dependency tracking for the LTLIBOBJS,

Considering this, maybe this is too high a price to pay for gaining
unchanged AM_CPPFLAGS, DEFS, and AM_LDFLAGS.  What do you think?
Sorry for not thinking enough about this before, but now that I see
this, I believe it needs to be addressed.

A couple of trivial nits:
- I believe SUBDIR_LIBOBJS is too generic a name to be used in
  third-party Makefiles.  (Prepend LT_ or LTDL_ or so)
- list libltdl/ before libltdl/ in ltdldatafiles

Could you please repost the patch without format=flowed, so I can apply
it cleanly.  Thank you.  I'm seeing weirdnesses with libtoolize but want
to make sure they are not from me messing up the merge.
