If you installed the new autoconf and automake under /usr/local, they might be looking for libtool's stuff under /usr/local and *not* under / usr. There *might* be a way, by setting some environment variable, to get them to try both /usr/local and /usr; if not, you might want to just download source to a recent version of libtool and try the configure/make/make install dance with it (as that'll probably install that version's stuff under /usr/local).
