The MSVC linker doesn't have a -L option, and doesn't understand
posix paths. Move the paths to an envvar (LINK) with a prefix
This patch is against Libtool 2.2

  • libltdl/m4/libtool.m4: Add new tag variables to specify

to what variable (dashL_envvar) -L options should be moved,
and what to prepend to the -L path (dashL_envvar_spec).

  • libltdl/config/ltmain.m4sh (func_dashL_to_envvar): New

function that moves -L options to a variable.

  • libltdl/config/ltmain.m4sh (func_mode_link): Prior to

linking, call above function if dashL_envvar is set.
