I seem to remember this libtool is too old.

http://www.us.xfce.org/archive/tools/ lists 1.5.6 as a minimum and
people who make packages from your work will thank you if use that as
they won't have to update libtool manually.

You could just relibtoolize your source with the newer versions and see
if that fixes it as Benny suggested.
