I was getting the same errors on my RedHat Linux (then v5.1) Pentium,
when libtool was not installed and again after I installed it in my
bin rather than the usual system-wide location.  Now that I have v5.2
installed and libtool is in the typical system-wide location, I do not
get these errors; I just verified this with the current version
available via CVS.

However, I'm now getting a new problem related to libtool, during
./configure:

[...]
checking if the linker (/usr/bin/ld) is GNU ld... yes
checking for BSD-compatible nm... /usr/bin/nm -B
checking whether ln -s works... yes
ltconfig: unrecognized option `--no-reexec'
Try `ltconfig --help' for more information.
configure: error: libtool configure failed
% rpm -q libtool
libtool-1.2b-1
wedgingt@mercury2% which libtool
/usr/bin/libtool
