Remove dolt

With libtool 2.2.6b the difference in build time is so small
(< 5% with -j8 builds) that it isn't worth having this hack.

A variant has been committed to git master for libX11 1.4 release:

    Revert “Dolt-ify"
    Libtool’s is now sufficiently fast that DOLT is no longer
    worth the bother, even on those few systems where is works.
    This reverts commit 3e9afd501e40d76040635bd9a3045bcaf5a03b60
    and part of commit d31e644c65c52828ea3e7abd94a8cf9aee12265c.
    It conflicted with commit f6a4fd0c7615684d08e848245849dea4017a5214
    which moved dolt from configure.ac to m4/dolt.m4.
