Memory leak in ltdl.c

  I use libtool to develop a daemon (www.freeradius.org).  We tracked
down a leak in the server to ltld.c

  The background is that the server re-reads it's configuration files
on every HUP, unlinks all loaded modules, and links in the new ones.
We discovered it was leaking ~500 bytes per HUP.  One of the other
developers tracked it down to ltdl.

  I haven't included system information, as the problem was seen
across all systems we tests on.

  We're using the last released libtool, 1.3.4.

  Anyways, the patch below fixes the problem for us.
