            Bug ID: 57690
           Summary: build from svn fails due to check for libtool.  ref:
                    buildconf, buildcheck, libtool
           Product: APR
           Version: HEAD
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: APR

patch to build/buildcheck.sh

Working with:
URL: http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/apr/apr/trunk
Revision: 1665724
Last Changed Date: 2015-03-08 06:10:01 -0400 (Sun, 08 Mar 2015)

When building APR from svn source running the "autotools bootstrap script":
./buildconf fails when running build/buildcheck.sh.
build/buildcheck.sh looks for a "libtool" program and may not find it.
At this stage of the build libtool should not be required to exist.  libtool is
built at "configure time" not at "bootstrap time" when ./buildconf is run.
So a fresh svn check-out of the APR code will fail to build when running

Grepping shows that build/buildcheck.sh is used only in buildconf, so I guess
that build/buildcheck.sh is only run by buildconf, but it's possible that the
grep will not find a composed "buildcheck.sh" string that is deep in the bowels
of the code.

The fix is easy, just remove the libtool check.  buildconf is checking for
libtoolize already, so that should be enough "checking", and this removed code
should not introduce any adverse effects.

Attached is a patch for consideration.
