Steve, you shouldn't need to reinstall libtool or autoconf,
in fact as of 2.2.9 (and apr 1.3.2) these were bleeding edge.

You only need such things if you were to run ./buildconf,
which I don't suggest you do.  I think Greg may have confused
you further.  We use these to create the tarball you obtained
so that you don't have to grab anything (except compiler, linker
etc etc).

Sorry bout your disk crash :(
