I added the --ltdl flag and it works now. Thank you very much. I have few questions:

- autoreconf: I would like to know what to use it for. Usually, I just do one bootstrap when I check out the code from cvs and then automake does everything correctly when I modified a or the All the correct commands are called by just using make. The only problem is when I add a folder, I have to rerun bootstrap. So, when I add a folder, instead of doing bootstrap maybe I should do autoreconf. Am I wrong ?

- one instance of libtool.m4: I have to say that I don't really understand what you are talking about. I am not familiar with m4 macros. So, I don't really understand the aim of doing the modifications you propose.

- ltdl: I guess I can remove libltdl files from cvs now it is generated every time.

Thank you very much again,

Actually, if you
don't need to support older Autoconf versions, it should use
`autoreconf' instead of calling the autotools individually.
If you want only one instance of the libtool.m4 macros and can allow use
of latest autotools only, you should create a m4 directory, add
to toplevel, put all .m4 files there (autoreconf calls the autotools with the right options then)
[and for a future libtoolize version
to toplevel].
Actually, you can do even better than that when using libltdl.  To avoid
duplication of configaux files and m4 macros between libltdl and your parent
project then in $top_srcdir/

ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS = -I libltdl/m4

in $top_srcdir/


Sure.  But then you need to modify libltdl/ and
libltdl/ as well.  This interferes with
 libtoolize --ltdl
overwriting these changes.

Note the bug reporter uses 1.5.x of Libtool.
