#725 compile fails with newest libtool


Hi. I am running Sorcerer, and as such, I run in to some bleeding-edge issues from time to time.
Libtool recently released a new version.
So, I updated libtool to newest version.
Then re-building libgphoto2 failed.

Here is a compile log:

Compile log for libgphoto2 2.4.0
Built with sorcery implosion-20080228-1 and gcc 4.2.3
Built on Mon Mar 3 16:48:31 SGT 2008
checking for a BSD-compatible install...

checking for ltdl.h... yes
checking for lt_dlcaller_register in -lltdl... no
configure: error:
libgphoto2 requires the ltdl library, included with libtool

Libtool 2.2 did install the following:

root@power64:~/.sorcery/grimoire# augur install libtool | grep ltdl.h

With the older version of libtool compilation of libgphoto2 works fine.
Thanks for your attention.

    Hi there.... Looks like an error in the configure script. If I issue:
    export ac_cv_lib_ltdl_lt_dlcaller_register=yes

    In my compile scripts, libgphoto2 compiles and operates fine.
