Libtool library linking (ITS#3776)

This particular change in behavior is really impacting my ability to easily
build OpenLDAP.  I'm curious as to why OpenLDAP 2.3.4 suddenly started
linking against libltdl when the beta releases didn't do this, and no
version of OpenLDAP 2.1, OpenLDAP 2.2, or any checkouts of HEAD I worked
with prior to OpenLDAP 2.3.4 being released did either.

Is there a particular purpose this linking serves?  My libtool is in a
non-standard location, and so are the libtool header and library.  slapd
being forced to link against this library makes it completely unusable for
me once it is compiled.

"These censorship operations against schools and libraries are stronger
than ever in the present religio-political climate. They often focus on
fantasy and sf books, which foster that deadly enemy to bigotry and blind
faith, the imagination." -- Ursula K. Le Guin
