Is it really true that Linux systems all install libltdl-devel by default these 

Without it, Open MPI can't compile its libltdl support, which is pretty key.

I ask because most people will install a Linux distro and then go grab the 
latest Open MPI tarball and build it from source (because OMPI releases far 
faster than distros, and we don't distribute binaries).

Plugins are pretty critical to Open MPI... that's why we embed libltdl.

It would be pretty bad for us if you prevent us from embedding libltdl.  We 
would be very, very sad pandas.  :-(
