That's why the comment said that it's unnecessary for that package.

For the GIMP packages, it is required; they ship with a libtool
that is incompatible with Debian policy. I have to run
automake/aclocal/autoconf every single time the package builds
to remove all vestiges of the old libtool and replace it with the
Debian libtool.
