Therefore it means AC_PROG_LIBTOOL is not evaluated.
This is certainly because AC_PROG_LIBTOOL is not defined in aclocal.m4.
This is probably because aclocal does not see libtool.m4 in its search path.
This is might be because Automake and Libtool are installed with different
--prefix; for instance Libtool in /usr and Automake in /usr/local.

If that is your case, you can add /usr/share/aclocal to the search
path of the new aclocal using

  echo /usr/share/aclocal > /usr/local/share/aclocal/dirlist

See the Automake manual's "Macro search path" section for more
discussion about dirlist.
