Google came up with the following patch for the above problem.

-if test -z "`glibtoolize --version 2>&1|head -1|egrep '1.4|1.5'`"; then
+LIBTOOL=`which glibtoolize 2>/dev/null`
+if test -z "$LIBTOOL"; then
+    LIBTOOL=`which libtoolize 2>/dev/null`
+if test -z "$LIBTOOL" -o -z "`$LIBTOOL --version 2>&1|head -1|egrep
'1.4|1.5'`"; then
        echo "Libtool 1.4 is required. Aborting build...";
        exit 1;

Jens and Freddie, does the above fit into your autotools scheme anywhere?
It's obviously not unique to Mac OS X.
