Automake is deprecating this script, as 'install-sh -d' provides all the
needed functionality.  It is only distributed if found, but not
installed any more.

Say, Philip, could you post complete output of 'make dist' so we can see
whether the failure is actually in libltdl, or rather your package?  It
can happen if either one was treated with an older Automake.  Anyway
there was another bug wrt. 'make dist' when an innermore package was
treated with an older Automake version and the outermore one with 1.10
IIRC (not that this is the case here, I don't know).
