If you want to update libtool alone (and thus have it in a different
$prefix than the other autotools), you need to help aclocal to find
the new libtool macro files.
- either: everywhere where
is executed in autogen.sh, you replace it with
- or: in the normal directory where aclocal searches, add a file named
"dirlist" which lists other directories to be searched. Note however,
that _these_ directories are searched _after_ the normal one, so if
you have libtool macros in both, a mixup will occur and you'll only
get angry. :)
(It would be good to augment the autogen.sh script so that it honored
a setting like ACLOCAL="path/to/aclocal -I ..." (in Bourne shell speak)
and similarly for AUTOMAKE, AUTOCONF, LIBTOOLIZE).
