The bootstrap of libtool is real painful. Studying the verbose output
of aclocal it appears it pulls libtool.m4 because of two obsolete
macros.  Adding the following stub file to libltdl/m4 cures all my
pains. It is probably worth the trouble to add it. Or maybe to add it
to lt-obsolete.m4.

With both macros, I don't quite understand how an external libtool.m4
should be pulled in:
* _LT_REQUIRED_DARWIN_CHECKS is m4_require'd and m4_defun_once'd.
We never in history AC_DEFUN'ed it.  How in the world does aclocal
see it in an external *.m4 file?
* _LT_AC_PROG_CXXCPP isn't even used in the current git tree.
Why does aclocal decide that it should be needed?

I don't know, they just happen to be the sole "found.*local/ libtool.m4" lines in the --verbose output. Attached for your own pleasure.

Which aclocal and autom4te version do you use BTW, and which version is
the installed libtool.m4 macro from (please distro version, too, so we
can check whether it's distro-specific changes that caused this bug)?

This is mac ports.

bash-3.2$ port info libtool
libtool 1.5.26, devel/libtool (Variants: universal)

GNU libtool is a generic library support script. Libtool hides the complexity of using shared libraries behind a consistent, portable interface.

bash-3.2$ port info automake
automake 1.10.1, devel/automake (Variants: universal)

Automake is a tool for automatically generating Makefile.in files from files called Makefile.am. Each Makefile.am is basically a series of make variable definitions, with rules being thrown in occasionally. The generated Makefile.in files are compliant with the GNU Makefile standards.
