Projects that use gnulib's bootstrap can set environment variables to
point to a local clone of gnulib.git.  However, libtool uses its own
custom bootstrap, and I don't know if it has that same functionality.
Patches are certainly welcome.  And it would also be nice if libtool's
own bootstrap could be merged back upstream with gnulib's bootstrap.
