I suffered from something that looks similar, my underlying
cause is that ECHO is not set properly leading to big trouble
when func_dirname_and_basename "$progpath" is executed.

this line:
func_dirname_result=`$ECHO "${1}" | $SED -e "$dirname"`
expands to the following for me
func_dirname_result=`"./libtoolize" | /bin/sed -e "s,/[^/]*$,,"`

leading to lots of forks.

my libtoolize as this line before the above
: ${ECHO=$as_echo}
but as_echo is not assigned anywhere in my libtoolize.

I'm on debian squeeze, autoconf 2.64, automake 1.11 but
testing the pr-msvc-support branch.


I did a clean checkout/bootstrap and the problem is gone.

I do not have a clear recollection of what I did to the
other checkout to get it into the bad shape. Sorry...
