Ah, sorry, my libtool HEAD wasn't HEADy enough either.  I hadn't spotted
that the new libtoolize copies libtool.m4 into the cwd, that solves the
whole "where is libtool.m4" problem for good.

Can you try updating to apr HEAD?  The changes I just checked in should
fix this issue - thanks for reporting it.

It's needed so that gets a LIBTOOL definition which has an
absolute pathname, since is included verbatim by apr-util.  
Without the sed you get:

LIBTOOL=$(SHELL) $(top_builddir)/libtool

(try changing the sed to a cp and watch the build break :)
