That should be /usr/local/share/aclocal/libtool.m4 or a file name with that
relation to your libtool installation prefix.  This looks like either an
Automake bug or an installation problem.

Have you used your autotools installation to successfully bootstrap other
packages that use Libtool?

What does ``perl -v'' print?  How about ``aclocal --print-ac-dir''?
