Everyone else seems to be on holiday, so I guess I'll look into it (unless
you want to send a patch? :-).)

Could libtoolize just use 'cp -f -p' instead of 'cp -f' when copying the files and leave the timestamps as they are in the original libltdl directory? I admit to not understanding all the details, but that was enough to clear up the problem for me (as one would expect - the installed sources of libltdl should be setup correctly...). Seems much easier than any of the other options.
