I've installed newest autoconf and automake. Now, autoreconf -vif (after deleting libtool.m4) fails with:

configure.ac:397: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_ENABLE_SHARED
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
configure.ac:471: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
