Alexander, All,

Arnout, licensing question for you at the end.

I guess HELP2MAN is no longer needed because there is no doc to build in
the libltdl subdir, right?

This host variable does inherit the value from the target variant, so
you don't need to specify an empty HOST_LIBTOOL_CONF_OPTS.

So, the host presumably also builds libltdl, no? Thus, we should include
its licensing information too;

    HOST_LIBTOOL_LICENSE = GPL-2.0+, LGPLv2.1 (libltdl)
    HOST_LIBTOOL_LICENSE_FILES = COPYING $(LIBTOOL_SUBDIR)/COPYING.LIB

Not sure about that one, wait a bit for others to confirm before
respinning the patch.

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
