I think using DLL_EXPORT in `ltdl.h' for building the shared library is
ok. It is the usual way for the `libtool' script to produce "PIC" code.
Personally I would not change it.

I do not see a `DLL_EXPORT' in (of version 1.4.2).  What do you
mean?  I do not hope you mean the `-DDLL_EXPORT' which `libtool' uses to
indicate it builds a shared object.  This is in my eyes now a accepted way
to produce shared libraries under Windows and is approved to be working
even with bigger projects and complicated inter-dependencies.
