It seems a shame that non-recursive packages must become recursive in order to build libltdl. Using Automake includes, Automake conditionals, and well-defined conventions, libltdl's could simply be included into the package's own This would allow libltdl targets to be built without any additional recursion, and without creating another


What about projects that want to use libltdl, but not automake?  We shouldn't
force the parent project to use particular tools. As long as we continue to support non-automake parent projects, then: +1 from me.

I expect that just means making sure libltdl/ can build
as a subproject, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Right. The form/structure of libltdl/ would support configuration as a stand-alone Makefile as well as working when included by another file. I am not quite sure what that would entail. It will probably require a different version of the file to support inclusion since the definitions would change.

For example, "libltdlc_la_SOURCES" would need to be changed to
libltdl_libltdlc_la_SOURCES and assignments to Automake standard variables like CLEANFILES would need to use += rather than =.
