I an using Ubuntu for windows  and i try to compile libtool  2.4.6.

I do the bootstrap , and configure (log are joined in files)  operations

I note during bootstrap some things anormal or not ?

bootstrap: running: git submodule init -- gnulib
fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git

It looks to me like the bootstrap script expects that the libtool directory is based on a git clone. Did you get it from a release tarball or via a git clone? If you did get it from a release tarball, why do you want to run bootstrap.

             Is it  normal to use libtool to build libtool ?

Libldtl is a library. It is not libtool (a shell script). First the libtool script is generated, and then libltdl is built using it.

I try to investigate many files like config.h which contains some binaries caracters !!!! normal or not ? if not perhaps i have a file system error !

I have no experience with "Ubuntu for windows" but perhaps Windows Linux system call emulation is not a perfect emulation? Or perhaps your directories/folders need to be prepared in a particular way?
