What version of libtool do you have installed? 1.5.6 should work fine.
It may be that you installed it in a different prefix than
automake/autoconf. If that is the case, you need to supply the correct
flags to tell where it is installed. If it's in /opt, for example, use
the following:
	ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /opt/share/aclocal" ./autogen.sh

Using the proper auto*/libtool packages from your distribution would
solve all your issues.
