there is probably not even need to do that.  One thing that would be
nice to have fixed is:

- the libltdl 2.2.4(?) regression that prevents proper error messages
  for failed loading of modules.

Somebody noted (off-list) that our bootstrap leaves information specific
from the person doing a release in the resulting tarball.  Specifically,
you should not have set $GREP, $EGREP, $FGREP, $SED, and some other
variables set in the bootstrap script, to some system-specific value,
because that will make them end up in the generated libtool script as
default value (and also a couple of other scripts).  These may cause
errors for others.  This is probably a bug in the bootstrap script or in
libltdl/config/general.m4sh, I haven't analyzed.
