To reproduce: uninstall libtldl3-dev on Debian, then see above command
still succeeding; alternatively, just move `$pkgdatadir/libltdl'
somewhere else after `make install'. I'm uncertain whether Debian's
packaging needs a change, though.
In any case, OK to apply the patch below to branch-1-5?
Gary, could you look into a fix for CVS HEAD? The corresponding code
looks a bit nonobvious to me.
