Ah!  I do get a ./configure script.  It's only that it doesn't work.

libtool-1.2f gives me the same error message on execution of this
script as 1.3.2 did:
	...
	updating cache ./config.cache
	ltconfig: unrecognized option `--cache-file=./config.cache'
	Try `ltconfig --help' for more information.
	configure: error: libtool configure failed

Hmm... both the ltconfig of libtool-1.2f and libtool-1.3.2 accepts the 
--cache-file directive.

However there is an
        libwww/config/ltconfig
file which doesn't:
	$ ./config/ltconfig --cache-file=./config.cache
	ltconfig: unrecognized option `--cache-file=./config.cache'
	Try `ltconfig --help' for more information.

Why is the latter script part of the libwww checkout?  Why does the
autoconf script pick this ltconfig instead of the libtool one?

Hm... what happens if I move this ltconfig away?  Ah...
        configure.in: 38: required file `config/ltconfig' not found

A configure script is still created, but it terminates with this error
message:
	...
	checking whether ln -s works... yes
	updating cache ./config.cache
	config/ltconfig: config/ltconfig: No such file or directory
	configure: error: libtool configure failed
