libtool problem compiling Heimdal


It seems that autoconf no longer supports version 1.2 of libtool.

This is a problem as Heimdal comes distributed with ltconfig 1.2d, and
cvs-buildpackage forces configure to be rebuilt on the local system. I
think this is because cvs gives all files the same time stamp, causing
make to rebuild them.

After configure is rebuilt, it is re-executed with the following error:

Any comments? Does this mean that the libtool files need to be
updated? I assume that this option is valid for ltconfig with later
libtool versions?
