you're going to hit this in every single package out there. it is
unreasonable to go to every maintainer and ask them to regenerate their
autotools & re-release using bleeding edge tools (in this case, master branch
of libtool). you're going to have to update your build scripts to do this
automatically. this is expected behavior every time you release a new
architecture that requires changes in core autotool packages.
