What is the requirements on the autotools for a libtoolized
package from HEAD? I heard a rumor that cvs versions were
required, at least at some point, is that really the case
or was it just a rumor?

At the moment they are required after a cvs checkout of Libtool HEAD for
building itself.

When will HEAD be able to bootstrap with the latest released

Just as soon as autoconf and automake put out new releases ;-)

But really, we would have to back out a lot of patches from libtool
HEAD (including another major reorganisation of the source tree)
to make that work.  And the whole point of dropping branch-2-0
is to bring a 2.0 release closer.  The 3 patches I attached to an
earlier mail are not too onerous.  With those applied to autoconf-2.59
and automake-1.9.6, you can bootstrap right now.
