I haven't finished the testsuite addition yet.  This fix requires
such an addition.

I think instead of Bruno's patch a much simpler fix is possible by
including a different header:

but I haven't checked yet whether that has license implications,
nor whether it actually works, nor whether it works for all system
and compiler combinations libtool cares about.

If somebody could do all that, that would be great.
