Thanks for your help. However, the script does invoke
autoreconf with '--force --install --verbose'. It appears that either
old versions of autoreconf don't invoke libtoolize with the --install
option, or more likely old versions of libtoolize don't support the
--install option. Do I do I have any options to influence this, short of
forcing the other devs to upgrade their tool chain?
