can't find libltdl library with installing libtool


Hello,
when installing libtool-2.4.2 with ./configure
I got the following message:
......
appending configuration tag "F77" to libtool
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.

When I do from /usr
$ find . -name lt_dl*
./include/libltdl/lt_dlloader.h
./local/include/libltdl/lt_dlloader.h
./local/share/libtool/libltdl/libltdl/lt_dlloader.h
./local/share/libtool/libltdl/lt_dlloader.c

indeed, there is no lt_dlcaller_register (whatever it is).

Can anyone help me with this?
with friendly greetings

Well, you could read the "manual" for "configure libtool" :

That's ./configure --help

This will create libltdl : ./configure --enable-ltdl-install

Providing libtool-2.4.2/libltdl/.libs/ \
{ libltdl.a libltdl.la libltdl.so.7.3.0 libltdl.so.7 libltdl.so
libltdlc.a libltdlc.la dlopen.a dlopen.la }

you are right.

Hello knudfl,
yes, you are right. The help is very elaborate although.
It all began with wanting a new gawk. For that I had to download some 10 packages. That is why I did not read careful enough.
Next time I will do a search in the ./configure --help.
Thanks. It worked.
with friendly greetings
