I chose it early on.  I thought it would solve dlopen portability
problems for us.  (And maybe it does and we haven't noticed :-)
Alexandre Oliva (CCd) may have insight on the pros and cons of this
library.

Also at the time we wanted the libltdl prelinking capability.  I don't
know if anybody has ever used this.
