A few comments about this.

First, we have a history of "cvs import"ing libltdl.  I'd prefer it if
we kept doing this, as this makes it easier for us to see what changes
we have relative to the upstream libltdl.  Especially as this import
has a local patch.

Once it is imported and merged back to the trunk, we can apply
Andreas' patch in a separate commit.  Are there other local changes in
this patch?

What platforms was this tested on?

I notice that one of our local changes no longer appears -- ltdl.c no
longer includes <gc.h>.  What's the story there?  (An import will
detect these sorts of things...)

If you've never done an import, send me email and I can walk you
through it.  I'd like to understand the other issues first though.
