Well, "use the port" comes to mind.  The
"porter" has done a good bit of work to make
sure that when make runs configure, configure
knows it is on a FreeBSD system and the header
file in question in under /usr/local/share/libtool15/libltdl/

That said, if you must compile from source (and there
could be some valid reasons, though I can't guess what
they are), there is probably some way to tell configure
to do this via the command line.  IANAE, though, and
don't know what it is; and I started to "make" the port
but didn't see anything.

Might be an exercise you could use.  Or, just install
the port.

Without fools there would be no wisdom.
