As I was very unsure about what tools will ever need this -- maybe.
I'm not sure if I want the switch --ltdl (and whatever other switches
libtoolize will ever have that change the set of macro files) to affect
the output (maybe --all-macro-files as well?).  The other idea that
springs to my mind is to have
   libtoolize --macro-srcdir
give me the directory from which aclocal could pull those macro files.
I'm not in a position to decide as I know far too little about the
overall machinery involved.
