Thanks.  I am applying your patch to HEAD and branch-2-0, with one small
change:  I have distributed the commented definitions so that each is
next to the AU_DEFUN that it matches.

You forgot to supply a ChangeLog entry so I wrote this one for you:

* m4/libtool.m4, m4/ltdl.m4, m4/ltoptions.m4: Added commented out
empty macro definitions to match each AU_DEFUN to help aclocal
from automake-1.4 regexps find the right libtool macro files.
