thanks for this info. 1.5.26 is the default for openSUSE 11.0. However, I have installed libtool version 2.2.6 on my system now. With this, after regeneration of of the aclocal.m4 files, I still get an error message, although a different one:

libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/lib/' or unhandled argument `/usr/lib/'

Here is the result of a call to `locate libXfixes':
So, there still for this library the incorrect path is used. Or am I doing something wrong?

I expect that the problem is that a .la file loaded via the linking search path refers to this /usr/lib/ file which does not exist (because it was deleted or never was installed). The .la files are just ASCII text files that you can open in a text editor.

Check your linking search path (set via LDFLAGS) and see what requested libraries do have a .la file which is refering to the missing /usr/lib/ file. Changing the linker search path might resolve the problem, or the wrong .la file could be manually edited, or even deleting the wrong .la file might help solve the problem.
