Well, even 1.1 as-is actually requires autoconf-2.50.  I was going to put
add that to configure.in as part of the patch.

The current libtool-freeradius integration is pretty sloppy, it wasn't
smooth sailing trying to upgrade.  We need to fix that.  The libtool
just changes the build process, so I'm VERY confident of its correctness.
I only updated ltdl because the new libtool requires it.  I'm also
highly confident of ltdl correctness.

I guess the only other thing I can say here is that the difference
between 1.1.2 and 1.1.3 would be the non-FR software, if folks run into
problems we can just tell them to use 1.1.2 instead ... with no worries
of any actual FR differences.
