When attempting to do ./configure ; make on a Debian
unstable system the following error causes the build
to abort:

make[1]: Entering directory
`/home/broonie/src/packages/regexx/f/regexx-0.98.1/src'
/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=compile c++
-DPACKAGE=\"regexx\" -DVERSION=\"0.98.1\"
-DHAVE_DLFCN_H=1 -I. -I. -g -O2 -c regexx.cc
libtool: ltconfig version `' does not match ltmain.sh
version `1.3.3'
Fatal configuration error. See the libtool docs for
more information.
make[1]: *** [regexx.lo] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
`/home/broonie/src/packages/regexx/f/regexx-0.98.1/src'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I was able to fix this by running

libtoolize --force
aclocal
autoconf

to regenerate the libtool files and configure.
