Unfortunately GNU libtool is not capable of building httpd on z/OS.
We use a homegrown libtool which understands enough about z/OS and
httpd to get it to work.  fwiw, it also understands BeOS thanks to

./buildconf is where libtoolize is done which is necessary.  I don't
*think* you need the rest of buildconf, but we always run buildconf so
that might be the path of least resistance.
