I'm only messing with the build system, the ltdl code itself is barely
changed, so I'd be surprised if these bugs go away.  (Un!)fortunately I
don't have access to any Windows machines, but I'd be happy to help you
debug these problems when ltdl is building properly again.

The Cygwin issue is TBD, but for MinGW it is clear that libltdl wants to load *something* for each dependency library. In my problem case, the depencency library is linked with another library and that library was a static library. It is not truely needed anymore, but appears due to libtool. Is there a reason for libltdl to attempt to load from a .la file's 'old_library' value on *any* platform?
