  Ugh.  Even better, use a build system which includes header/library
checking as part of the dependencies.  Waf && others seem to be a good
start here.

  For 2.2.x, I've been looking at getting rid of libtool && libltdl.
All modern systems have dlopen(), so that makes things easier.  Getting
rid of autoconf would be a logical next step.
