That's true. However as mentioned on
http://wiki.wireshark.org/BuildingAndInstalling I wanted to install
automake in the same prefix as libtool.  Sudo apt-get install automake
was putting it in a diff dir.
That item applies only if you're installing libtool from source  
because the version that comes with your OS is 1.5.x and less than  
1.5.10 (as it notes, there's a bug in 1.5, fixed in 1.5.10) - *IF*  
you're installing libtool from source for that reason, *THEN* you have  
to install automake and autoconf in the same prefix.
It doesn't apply to versions that come with the OS - which includes,  
for Debian and derivatives of it such as Ubuntu, versions installed  
with an apt-get from the distribution's repository - so if you do an  
"apt-get install" of automake, autoconf, and libtool, that should be  
OK.  (If it's not, that's a bug in your distribution.)
This is the output:
What's the output of "sh -x ./aclocal-flags"?
