Thanks for this patch!

In fact, I don't think we need the full libtool on the target at all,
so perhaps we should just change the existing libtool package in its
target variant to only install libltdl ?

I see the following packages that have a dependency on target libtool:

 - clamav
 - nut
 - pulseaudio
 - unixodbc

and all of them seem to have this dependency solely for libltdl.

Peter, Yann, Arnout, thoughts ?
