- Install Libtool.  Fix your $automake_prefix/share/aclocal/dirlist file
  so that aclocal finds libtool's files, and $PATH so that it contains
  libtoolize.  CVS Libtool has means in place to tell apart version

I'm not in favor of merging libtool into gnulib, and I would prefer if
you would not "force" CVS users.  The added inconvenience would make me
stop testing CVS M4 with CVS Libtool.
