This just masks the real bug, and will make a correct fix harder to find later
on. :-(

Index: ChangeLog
        * libtoolize.m4sh: Use cp -p to copy files, it has a better chance
        of keeping make's dependency tracking happy.

No, Please don't!  I think using this idiom will work correctly everywhere
(untested however!):

 ( cd $sourcedir && tar cf - filenames; ) | ( cd $destdir && tar xf -; )

I'll try and make a patch for branch-2-0 and HEAD today, and we can backport
that to branch-1-5 if necessary after approval.
