I knew this was going to happen. :)

The problem was that it didn't work with newer automake/autoconf...  so I
fixed that, and now it doesn't work with older automake/autoconf.
But, I guess this is the better direction to err in.

On some boxes I'm using Automake 1.5, and Autoconf 2.53 and it works fine.
Autoconf will complain about some of the M4 code generated by Automake,
but it still works.

On other boxes I have a newer version of Automake... I think 1.61, but
I can't currently get to those boxes to check...  but on those machines
I get no errors at all.  Same version of Autoconf.

The version of Libtool that you're using should be fine.

On my RedHat 7.1 box I upgraded by grabbing the source for automake &
autoconf from http://www.gnu.org doing:

    rpm -e automake
    rpm -e autoconf
    rpm -e glib-devel
    tar xvzf automake.tar.gz
    cd automake
    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    make install
    tar xvzf autoconf.tar.gz
    cd autoconf
    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    make install
    mount /mnt/cdrom
    cd /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS
    rpm -i glib-devel.whatevertherestofthefilenameis.rpm
