    This is a known problem that is fixed in the latest CVS and will be fixed in
    the 7.2.0 release that's going up today or tomorrow. The "easy fix" should
    be to delete the m4/libtool.m4 file and rerun ./ && ./configure --
    then make should successfully complete. Feel free to post any follow up
    problems here or as a new bug.. Thanks for the report!
