Had to read that twice to get my head around it, but yes, I agree with you.

Yep, that makes sense.

So we need to add (to automake) a mechanism to enable us to specify local
rebuild rules in libltdl/, without referring to automake internals,
and have those propogate into libltdl/Makefile instead of the automake
generated rules?
