Can't the changes from 0.15.0 to 0.16.2 that broke the CXX check just be
reverted? I'm probably thinking too simplisticly.

This failure is not really new. It has been happening since the original 1.5 release. Maybe a fix was removed?

Will 2.0 be fully backwards compatible with packages that are designed
for the older libtools (0.15, 0.16, 0.17)?

It is intended to be macro-compatible, but last I looked the documentation did not really reflect that since the documentation for the older macros was entirely replaced with a description of the new macros. There are some changes to the behavior of libtoolize and where the libtool m4 files are stored for the project so some small effort will be required to update to 2.0.

The scheme for configuring libltdl has been completely re-vamped in that now the same configure script which configures the package can also configure libltdl without using a subordinate configure script. At least that is the plan.
