[snip long description of ugly runtime test]

After discussion with Bob F, I've reimplemented this fix without the actual runtime test. Instead, if $host_os is cygwin, and cygwin version is 1.5.24 or older, then force use of libltdl builtin argz. In all other cases (including cross), pre-existing detection rules apply.

This new version is certainly more attractive than before. Presumably this special case can be safely removed after enough time has elapsed for the majority of Cygwin installs to be updated.

Right, give or take a year. 8-P

Is the:

  libmlib_la_LDFLAGS = -no-undefined -export-symbols-regex ".*"

statement portable?

(1) Yes

(2) and it shouldn't be in this patch anyway. Ralf already applied that bit to HEAD:

"My bigger worries with this patch were that it could regress on
some other, unrelated platform.  I've checked the systems I have access
to now, and all seem to do fine.  So I have applied the change as below."

This is what happens when you try some home-grown version of patch-quilt...long story.
