This is very good news!  But to give credit where credit is due, the
``gods'' responsible for the ``miracle'' :-) are John David Anglin and
David Jones, for having fixed libltdl support for HP/UX, and Gary
V. Vaughan, from the Libtool team, that spent a lot of time with me
investigating how to properly create shared libraries on HP/UX.
