Explanation of patch:
acinclude.m4, ltdl.m4: Probably only ltdl.m4 needs to be changed
Basically I replaced the erroroneous detection with the simple check of
newer libtools. This step is needed because arts includes its own,
somewhat dated, copy of libltdl. Do we want to get rid of that anyway
(because we want to use system libraries whenever possible)? Or does
arts need this specific version of libltdl for some reason?
How's the best way to use a newer/different libltdl? (Naively?) replace
arts' libltdl/ with that from /usr/share/libtool/libltdl?
With this patch, I am able to build an artsd that doesn't
running other KDE apps that generate sound. It's possible that there
are other issues beyond this as I don't normally run KDE. Rex, if you
can throw me some problem packages I'll be happy to look into what is
causing things to break.
Install kdemultimedia-extras and try using 'juk' to play audio/music
files. Or just login/use kde and all system sounds will use arts as well.
