Yep, but libtool needs dlpreopening support in order to be able to
simulate dlopening of static libraries.  Could you please post the
output of `./config.status --recheck', run within the libltdl
directory?  Maybe libtool couldn't find a working `nm' program for
some reason...

It depends on whether the inter-library dependencies of libnative
could be satisfied.  Remove and make it again, then see
what are the warning messages printed by libtool.
