Did you use the '-f' option to pacman at any time? If yes, pacman might
have screwed up when files were moved from one package to the other. In
that case, reinstall libltdl (as the files seem to be missing, you want
to reinstall libltdl anyway).

Please remember that the -f option to pacman -U or -S is a bad idea
unless you know exactly what you are doing, and leads to unexpected
behaviour. Don't use it.

This has nothing to do with multilib.
