No problem, I just meant to report it in case it was not
intentional.  Maybe you could NEWS this?  It can potentially
break some autogen.sh scripts.

Another new behavior is that libtoolize complains when
aclocal.m4 does not exist.

~/projs/cvs/automake/HEAD3/tests % ./libtool5.test
=== Running test ./libtool5.test
++ pwd
+ set -e
+ cat
+ cat
+ libtoolize
cat: aclocal.m4: No such file or directory
libtoolize: copying file `./ltmain.sh'
libtoolize: copying file `./libtool.m4'

This one looks rather like a bug.

 Gary> wouldn't calling "libtoolize --force" be more consistent?

Either way seems fine.  Some other test cases already use
--force, and I presume it's not a bad idea to test more that one
