Subject: [OMPI users] possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
From: Dmitry N. Mikushin (maemarcus_at_[hidden])

Dear Open MPI Community,

I need a custom OpenMPI build. While running ./autogen.pl on Debian
Squeeze, there is an error:

--- Found autogen.sh; running...
autoreconf2.50: Entering directory `.'
autoreconf2.50: configure.in: not using Gettext
autoreconf2.50: running: aclocal --force -I m4
autoreconf2.50: configure.in: tracing
autoreconf2.50: configure.in: not using Libtool
autoreconf2.50: running: /usr/bin/autoconf --force
configure.in:113: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
autoreconf2.50: /usr/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1
Command failed: ./autogen.sh

It's a bit confusing, because automake, libtool, autoconf are
installed. What might be the other reasons of this error?

Thanks,
- Dima.
