No no, misunderstanding here:
Suppose I am writing some software package S. It makes use of libltdl.
I do not want to ship the libltdl sources with it. Rather, I want to
require the users of S to separately install libltdl on their system
(given software distributions with decent package dependency handling,
this might not be such a bad thing to do). Does Libtool support this?
In this case it seems to me that libltdl is just a normal library like
other installed libraries libtool is used to link against. The
dependent application/library simply needs to list it as a dependency.
What am I missing?
