Yes. The above was from my November libtool HEAD. I just upgraded now
to today's libtool HEAD, and

% sh buildconf |& tee buildconf.out
rebuilding srclib/apr/configure
buildconf: checking installation...
buildconf: autoconf version 2.59 (ok)
buildconf: libtool version 1.5a (ok)
Copying libtool helper files ...
cat: aclocal.m4: No such file or directory
/usr/local/share/aclocal/libtool.m4 not found
./buildconf failed for apr


As I was trying to say, there is no libtool.m4 in $prefix/share/aclocal
(If you really want to know, it is in $prefix/share/libtool/m4, but I
didn't want to mention it, because making your search for it uglier
isn't the right plan. I was really looking for comments along why that
sed song and dance was actually necessary at all..)

Cheers,

Patrick
