[pulseaudio-discuss] libltdl error when building

i'm trying to build version 0.9.9 on ubuntu gutsy.  i've installed
the libltdl3-dev package, which seems to be version 1.5.24.

the make is complaining about ${topdir}/libltdl/libltdl.la being missing.
i see that a version of libltdl was removed from svn in october.  is
this a side-effect of that change?

here's the trimmed error.
make[3]: Entering directory `/home/pgf/src/pdom/sound/pulseaudio-0.9.9/src'
/bin/bash ../libtool --tag=CC   --mode=link gcc [...]  ../libltdl/libltdl.la  [...]
libtool: link: cannot find the library `../libltdl/libltdl.la' or unhandled argument `../libltdl/libltdl.la'
make[3]: *** [libpulsecore.la] Error 1

thanks in advance for pointing out my probably obvious error, gently.  :-)

p.s.  perhaps the list of source pre-requisites page should
mention the need for libltdl:
