It is...

I think I found the problem.

At the site where I have this problem I install the auto* tools using mpkg,
which lets me have multiple versions of the auto* tools.

This means I am still using the following patch which has not been applied
to the main tree:

     # Search the versioned directory near the end, and then the
     # unversioned directory last.  Only do this if the user didn't
     # override acdir.

When I "select" the version of libtool I want to use it sticks the path to
its share/aclocal in ACLOCAL_PATH.

I (believe I) need to use this mechanism instead of the recently-implemented
dirlist solution because dirlist changes behavior system-wide, and I need
per-shell control over the versions of software that will be used.

I'll hack around this problem locally.

I'm working on it now.
