This happens when you partially regenerate libtool m4 files (specifically 
using a different version of libtool to the one you are building with, and 
a lot of problems later on if you had continued with a mix-and-match of and
libtool.m4 from different libtool revisions.

Assuming you clear up the problem with your file timestamps, you'll be able to 
the generated files as is from the release tarball which do have matching 

If you prefer to build from git, then the bootstrap script will generate the 
files correctly before you call ./configure.
