M4 master, for example, has had to simply turn off all the libltdl/OS run-time loader path searching to maintain any cross platform sanity (it does this by managing it's own search path environment variable, making the searches itself and then always passing fully qualified paths to libltdl). That sort of functionality seems like it should really be in libltdl, which is supposed to help with this kind of thing.

GraphicsMagick does the same, but this is actually a blessing since it makes it easy to stop using libltdl if need be. :-)

Most would agree that libltdl includes too many features that nobody uses, but can bite you in the ass if you fail to pay attention.
