bug? bootstrapping libtool on linux

Thanks a lot for all your impressive work.

I just got myself autoconf/automake/libtool from CVS and compiled the stuff 
on a system that had autoconf, automake, but no libtool.

I first installed the new autoconf/automake, then I did

% ./bootstrap

% make

During this make I get complaints that ./libtool does not exsist in libtdl 
(see below, after my sig.). Generating a softlink 

% ln -s ../libtool

cures the problem.
