Let's try and make a road plan for a 1.1 release. I guess we should address 
the problems with the autotools that Laurence Marks described.

Here I have Red Hat 8 which comes with automake 1.6.3, autoconf 2.53 and 
libtool 1.4.2.

I find that if I remove depcomp and the config.*, then automake, autoconf 
shove in new versions. Great. However, if I remove libtool.m4 and run 
libtoolize, I do do not get a new version of libtool.m4. I guess, therefore 
that it is no longer needed?

Certainly, I can confirm that everything works for me.

Here is the patch. Wa d'ya think?

NB, reading on the web, it appears that others have added libtoolize to 
Should we do so?
