In case anyone missed the subtly here... GNOMEish ports are by far  
and away the biggest consumers of libltdl.  Since the patch in  
question affects run-time as opposed to compile-time, simply assuming  
that "hey, it builds, commit" doesn't really apply in this case.

So if folks want to see this in the tree, please do test heavily on  
the MC GNOME repo which has these patches in place -- by doing so,  
it'll definitely speed up the process.

(I figure I'll drop it in the tree at the same time as gettext 0.16.x  
-- that should be fun ;)
