Updated: {libtool/libltdl7}-2.2.6a-1

GNU libtool is a generic library support script. Libtool hides the
complexity of using shared libraries behind a consistent, portable

This is a refresh of the previous libtool-2.2.2-2 package, AND
represents the long-awaited "stable" release of libtool-2.2 for cygwin,
obsoleting libtool-1.5.27a and previous.

MAINTAINERS: note that the new runtime library version is libltdl7, not
libltdl3. Please update your package's requires: if you rebuild using
this version of libtool, and your package relies on ltdl.

Changes since libtool-2.2.2-2
o routine update from 2.2.2 to 2.2.6a
  + includes fixes for several cygwin-specific issues
    = _setmode warning
    = string length greater than ISO C99 compilers are required to
    = realpath warning
  + some other internal improvements
    = wrapper executable now invokes "real" executable directly, without
      "emitting" a shell script, invoking THAT, which THEN invokes the
      real executable.
    = libltdl now contains support for cygwin-1.7 long paths
o now brought out of 'test' to 'curr' status
o Still includes patches from Yaakov Selkowitz
o Includes a fix for -dlpreopen when --disable-static

Test results -- old tests:
All 115 tests passed

Test results -- new tests:
ERROR: 69 tests were run,
5 failed (3 expected failures).
5 tests were skipped.

Failed tests were:
 25: Link order of deplibs.          FAILED (
 73: Run tests with low max_cmd_len  FAILED (
Which is not a regression.
