I don't really want to take on the burden of hand maintaining an enormous
generated, when maintaining a tiny and enhancing
automake a little to help with generation is possible.

Why not try adding AC_REQUIRE([AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE]) to AC_LIB_LTDL and enumerate
the problems... it will be interesting to find out how much pain there is at
