[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: {libtool/libltdl7}-2.2.7a-1

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

This is a bugfix and feature enhancement update.

Unless there are serious issues with this package, it is likely to be
the last version of libtool released for cygwin-1.5.  Future development
will continue with libtool-2.2.7a-10 for cygwin-1.7.

Changes since libtool-2.2.6a-1
o Update to latest git development
  + plus fixes for several cygwin-specific issues
    = cwrapper should now work in unix->cygwin cross-compile
    = Updated version of previous fix for -dlpreopen when
  + includes some patches from pr-msvc development branch
o No longer includes the LT_OUTPUT patch from Yaakov Selkowitz
  but the _LT_DECL_OBJDUMP is now included upstream.

Test results -- old tests:
All 113 tests passed
2 tests were not run

Test results -- new tests:
78 tests behaved as expected.
8 tests were skipped.

For the first time in a LONG time, cygwin libtool passes all regressions!
