FYI: I just did the following in the unixODBC root;

$ libtoolize --force
$ libtoolize --force --ltdl
$ make -f Makefile.cvs
$ ./configure

This seems to have worked fine but, of course, I can not check the 
sources in now as I will overwite some of the changes you have recently 
made as I have libtool v1.5.2 installed on this machine (SuSE 9.1) - 
this is the 'dog chasing tail' thing I mentioned earlier.

Makes me think that libltdl should be left out of cvs (as well as files 
resulting from libtoolize) - unless they need to be manually tweaked - 
yuk? A requirement can be to have a libtool installed to work on a cvs 
version of unixODBC and then libtoolize can be added to Makefile.cvs?

BTW: Sorry about the flurry of posts - just trying to work this out asap 
as latest unixODBC sources needed for building other software :)
