[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: {libtool/libltdl7}-2.2.7a-15

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.

cygutils package is available exclusively for cygwin-1.7.

* Updated to latest git master version (2009-12-30,
* STILL has 73kB of cygwin-specific patches (ridiculous review
  backlog upstream)
* Additional patches to fix:
  + cwrapper test problems on mingw
  + certain issues with UAC wrappers
    - Cesar Strauss "Libtool: Generated manifests need execute permission"
    - Eric Blake "[PATCH] [cygwin|mingw] Create UAC manifest files."
      (clean up manifests)
    - Kai Tietz "[PATCH] [cygwin|mingw] Create UAC manifest files."
      (Support 64bit windows)
  + allow runtime library flags (like -static-libgcc)
    - Yaakov Selkowitz "libtool: -{shared,static}-libgcc"
* Compiled using gcc4
