libltdlc.{a,la} is a convenience library - that is an ar(1) archive of shared 
objects to be statically linked (copied) into a program directly.  It is never 
installed, but built from sources included in the distribution of the parent 

You should find that the courier main server source tree you are building from 
either contains a copy of the libltdl sources already, or else has a bootstrap 
(or script that copies the libltdl sources into the tree using the 
libtoolize script installed along with the other libltdl files you just 
installed separately.

If the process isn't working properly, the maintainers of courier main server 
are much better placed to help you find the right combination of build 
commands, or else fix bugs in their libltdl integration.
