But is it really a requirement? If you are referring to libtool commit
v2.2.10-92-g92d24b3, then that patch adds an /optional/ dependency on
autobuild. If you are a maintainer doing a release of libtool, it
probably is a requirement, but are you not simply building the released
version (perhaps with a few patches)? I know that I certainly have built
git libtool many times when working on it, and I do not have autobuild

That said, +1 if votes are needed.
