This is the same aclocal problem you saw before.
perhaps your path is not set right (so you're running
some other version of aclocal), or maybe the libtool.am file
is installed in the wrong place.

The bottom line is that when aclocal runs, the AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
macro is not being put into aclocal.m4.

Try running aclocal in verbose mode:
Here's what I get:

  /usr/bin/aclocal --verbose -I m4 2>&1 | grep AC_PROG_LIBTOOL|head -n2
  aclocal: found macro AC_PROG_LIBTOOL in /usr/share/aclocal/libtool.m4: 25
  aclocal: found macro _AC_PROG_LIBTOOL in /usr/share/aclocal/libtool.m4: 60

BTW, if you're installing your own version of automake,
why don't you use automake-1.10?
