Wait a moment. We already have working implementations of these functions
in glibc, owned by the FSF. Rather than spend time writing and debugging
new implementations of them, also owned by the FSF, wouldn't it be simpler
to ask RMS whether the FSF gives us permissions to take the files from glibc
and distribute them under ltdl's copyright?

A note like this should do it:

   NOTE: The canonical source of this file is maintained with the GNU Libtool
   package.  Bugs can be reported to address@hidden
