[Mono-dev] Building from Source failing - libtool version mismatch

Hi All,

Trying to build mono from source. I grabbed the latest head from SVN, 
and kicked off ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local. After much printing, I 
get the following:


checking for correct ltmain.sh version... no
configure: error:

*** [Gentoo] sanity check failed! ***
*** libtool.m4 and ltmain.sh have a version mismatch! ***
*** (libtool.m4 = 1.5.22, ltmain.sh = 1.5.6) ***

Please run:

   libtoolize --copy --force

if appropriate, please contact the maintainer of this
package (or your distribution) for help.

configure: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for libgc


I'm using Gentoo, and looking at emerge, I'm running the latest stable 
version of libtool. Should I grab an unstable version, or is there 
something else I need to do?
