OK, I have submitted the libtool changes. I've gotten some response, but
nothing definitive yet.

OK. I've tested out static and dynamic builds for all of the backends except
bdb2. The install rules now use $libexecdir/$ldap_subdir for installing the
dynamic backends. I originally set up the build with libltdl copied into the
OpenLDAP source tree, but that was a real pain to get configured properly.
Now I just rely on libltdl already being installed on default search paths.
It seems this is OK since we already require libtool 1.3.3 to be installed
on the build system.
