On a minimaly expanded OpenIndiana, the above steps need

    ACLOCAL=aclocal-1.10 AUTOMAKE=aclocal-1.10 automake

since the default installation ships with version 1.10 and 1.9.

Then the initial problem goes away, i.e., missing libtool, but on the other
hand the standard X-idiom is failing once executing libtool using "make".
Libtool also chokes unduly on a bogus "--prefix", so the excerpt below
excludes that switch in comparison to the initial message.

A closer inspection reveals that the libtool project is doing
well in distroying its own code: the variable ECHO is defined,
byt is never used. Instead there are numerous "$echo" in use.
Care to admit being the culprit?

Once I have patched the installed libtool with this one-liner,
then the build step is conducted successfully.
