When you can't even be bothered to delete the extra "config and/or log files etc." text, you've already not made people very excited to fix this.

At the very least, a list of actual packages that need only libltdl and not libtool would be helpful, or at least a partial list. Some of those 30 might actually depend on libtool and not libltdl, and this bug report has not helped a bit in reducing investigative time.

yes. sorry for that.
I am trying some packages now.
It is really a pain, but I would like to file the bug in this issue rather than open tickets individually.
I will post something later. Please confirm.

We don't need individual tickets, putting a list here as you come up with it is fine.

freehdl no (libtool use by /usr/bin/{freehdl-config,gvhdl}, /usr/lib/pkgconfig/freehdl.pc)


-----
The result was achieved with the following commands : ldd, strings, grep
However, some binaries have been tested and works properly without 'libtool' package (only 'libltdl' installed)

=> Send this information to the package maintainers.
