Hello, Ralf -

This was a cockpit error.  I did ./configure && make && make install,
which installed the new system in /usr/local/.  My path was set to pick
up the new versions of the excutables, but the linker was not told where
to find the libraries.

lynn> ls -l /usr/local/lib/libltd*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 189678 Feb 15 21:55 /usr/local/lib/libltdl.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root    950 Feb 15 21:55 /usr/local/lib/libltdl.la*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     16 Feb 15 21:55 /usr/local/lib/libltdl.so -> 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     16 Feb 15 21:55 /usr/local/lib/libltdl.so.7 -> 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 113165 Feb 15 21:55 /usr/local/lib/libltdl.so.7.0.0*

/usr/local/lib64 is empty.

I re-ran the tests with the LD_LIBRARY_PATH set to explicitly include
/usr/local/lib.  Test 25 passed, and test 49 gave the known failure. 
If you would like the log, I can send it, but I doubt if there is any
new information in it.  I turned on the -v flag for verbose output.

I suspect that when the support for this system is fully worked out,
the $prefix variables should expand to /usr/local/lib64 instead of
/usr/local/lib -- but that is incompatible with a whole lot of existing
configuration scripts.  (Boy, do I hope autoreconf works on this one.)

Thank you again, and I apologize for taking up your time on what is
obviously going to be a very busy weekend.
