Shame on me for this typo.  :(

(These few lines would've been sufficient information, BTW.)

In your first message, you wrote:

This is your system's installed libtool script, whereas the package you
compiled uses its own provided libtool script (which is created during
configure).  Please show the version of that -- it's likely much older.

As your build also shows (I've deleted that because I could've guessed
it), the automatic rebuilding rules call `automake' again, which is
likely much newer than the shipped  Automake creates the
rules that contain `--tag', and the old libtool does not understand

Solution is to either not change the files of the package (so autoconf
and automake are not triggered), or use AM_MAINTAINER_MODE to prevent
this, or to libtoolize again, update the m4 macros (in aclocal.m4) and
then autoreconf.
