I'm having a bit of a problem with gnucash 1.9.6 on Fedora Core 5.  I've
searched the mailing list page (great resource - thanks!) and googled,
but nothing so far.

I get to "make" and have the following error:

gcc -shared  .libs/gnc-module.o -Wl,--whole-archive
../../lib/libc/.libs/libc-missing.a -Wl,--no-whole-archive  -Wl,--rpath
-Wl,/data/gnucash-1.9.6/src/core-utils/.libs -Wl,--rpath

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lltdl
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[5]: *** [] Error 1
make[5]: Leaving directory `/data/gnucash-1.9.6/src/gnc-module'

I've looked in /usr/lib and I have a symbolic link to 
When I run a "yum provides ltdl" I get the guile packages and
courier-auth as well.  All are shown installed.

Obviously I'm missing something fundamental.
