I set the ACLOCAL_FLAGS to /usr/share/aclocal  ,

Running libtoolize...

libtoolize: putting auxiliary files in `.'.

libtoolize: copying file `./'

libtoolize: You should add the contents of the following files to `aclocal.m4':

libtoolize:   `/usr/share/aclocal/libtool.m4'

libtoolize:   `/usr/share/aclocal/ltoptions.m4'

libtoolize:   `/usr/share/aclocal/ltversion.m4'

libtoolize:   `/usr/share/aclocal/ltsugar.m4'

libtoolize:   `/usr/share/aclocal/lt~obsolete.m4'

libtoolize: Consider adding `AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR([m4])' to and

libtoolize: rerunning libtoolize, to keep the correct libtool macros in-tree.

libtoolize: Consider adding `-I m4' to ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS in

Running aclocal -I /usr/share/aclocal ...

This is followed by some warning in and then warnings about not following GNU standard in , followed by autoconf.

I have tried autoreconf , but i am still hitting the same issue.

Did automake output anything?  Did aclocal find the macro files of the
new Libtool?  Use --verbose to find out.  In order to let it find them,
you can for example use the dirlist feature (add the entry
$libtool_prefix/share/aclocal to the file
$automake_prefix/share/aclocal/dirlist); or you could use the -I option
to aclocal, or ensure that Automake and Libtool are installed below the
same $prefix.

But of course there could be other reasons as well; did you run
autoreconf -vfi so that is replaced in your package?
Without copy and paste of commands plus output it is hard to say.
