IIRC CVS HEAD M4 does not operate correctly in all cases with Libtool
1.5.22.  I may remember wrongly, though.

But this isn't anything new, nor particularly tied to Libtool.  If you
need aclocal to find third-party macros, you must point it to them.

By the way, M4's bootstrap script could just as well invoke
  libtoolize --ltdl=ltdl --install --copy --force

and the above aclocal-related change would not be necessary.  Why
doesn't it do that?
