Patch to copy ltmain.sh to the staging area.

I'm no libtool expert and I'm struggling to adapt a couple of packages which
use it to Buildroot.  Instead trying to find the incompatibilities and then to
generate patches which mung the package's existing ltmain.sh, and which may
well break when the package is updated, I'd like to be able to copy in the
latest ltmain.sh, as is already done by gnuconfig for config.{guess,sub}.

At present I am doing this when required with a PACKAGE_POST_PATCH_HOOKS
target.  So there is no need to add extra Buildroot config items, potentially 
breaking other packages, as long as ltmain.sh is available in a known place.

If there's some reason why this is silly or otherwise not the best way to work,
I'd welcome any advice.  Otherwise please would you consider the attached patch
to add ltmain.sh to the libtool staging files ?
