This package is made with automake / aclocal 1.7.2 and autoconf / autoheader

I remember. I thought that the problem was related to something in automake
1.7 so when I noticed they had done two patch releases to that, I took the
step up to 1.7.2 and I hoped things would work for you...

AFAIK, I'm running with the latest right now. There's a newer libtool out
though, I use 1.4.2 and there's a 1.4.3 released.

What libtool are you using?
