Yes, I wondered about this (a lilypond user flagged this problem just
a minute ago). But I guess there's no way around this, for guile?
It's a short term problem. I've currently got a -20020705 snapshot of
libtool-devel up as a test release. Nicholas has sent me a few patches,
and we're tracking down one other problem as well. Once those are
fixed, I'll release another test release -- with cygltdl-3.dll split out
into, oh, I dunno, a 'libltdl3' package.
Once that version is made 'current', then guile's problems are solved:
just change the hint to require 'libltdl3' instead of libtool-devel.
However, in the short term, early adopters of guile are going to get
slammed with lots of extraneous stuff.
