[kaffe] Problem with configuration

I am trying to configure Kaffe version xxxxxx


I have downloaded the library libtool from  


     and installed in /usr/local/lib, /usr/local/include


My /usr/local/lib  looks like this:

[27] ../libtool/libtool-2.2.4 : ls /usr/local/lib

libltdl.a   libltdl.so.7      libts-0.0.so.0.1.1  libts.so

libltdl.la  libltdl.so.7.1.2  libts.a             pkgconfig

libltdl.so  libts-0.0.so.0    libts.la            ts



I have specified the include and library path in configure

e.g: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --build=i386-linux --host=arm-linux
--with-includes="/usr/local/include" --with-libraries="/usr/local/lib"


I am getting the following error  :


checking dynamic linker characteristics... GNU/Linux ld.so

checking how to hardcode library paths into programs... immediate

checking ltdl.h usability... yes

checking ltdl.h presence... yes

checking for ltdl.h... yes

checking for library containing lt_dlcaller_register... no

configure: error: Can't find the libltdl library.


I went to /usr/local/lib and ran the nm command against each library
(object) file. The nm command shows the symbols in an object file. None
of the libraries contained a lt_dllcaller_register symbol. 


I then searched the libtool archive for any mention of
lt_dlcaller_register. The file named ChangeLog.2005 says that
lt_dlcaller_register was renamed, and the file named NEWS says it was a
deprecated API and was removed.


So, it looks like the Kaffe configure script is referencing a deprecated
API in the libltdl library. Is that correct?


Please suggest how to make the configure work properly.
