libtool: AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR broken (GNU libtool 1.4.2a)

Package: libtool
Version: 1.4.2-3
Severity: important

Dear All.

When I run libtoolize with a configure.in file present, I get the

$ libtoolize --force --copy
Putting files in AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR, `scripts'.

and config.sub, config.guess and ltmain.sh are put into the `scripts'

However, if I remove configure.in, and replace it with configure.ac, I

$ libtoolize --force --copy

and the files are not put into the aux dir (just into .).

$ grep CONFIG_AUX_DIR configure.*

Is appears that AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR is not respected if configure.ac is
used instead of configure.in.

This is not due to the file contents, just the name:
$ mv configure.ac configure.in
$ libtoolize --force --copy
Putting files in AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR, `scripts'.

This completely breaks automake/autoconf (1.5 and 2.52), so I classified this
bug as `important'.

The following patch fixes this (unified diff):
