autoreconf runs aclocal to find out by tracing whether AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
is used, then runs libtoolize if needed, then runs aclocal again if
needed.  I think that is just about the right way to do it, barring
extra warnings.

I haven't looked at your recently posted tracing script for whether that
does this much differently, but I'm guessing not.
