Description Patrice Dumas 2006-11-24 10:45:16 EST
Description of problem:

When libtoolize installs config.guess (and similar files) it uses
the one found in /usr/share/libtool/, however this is obsolete
with regard with files shipped by automake. Depending on the
preexisting files and options given, for example to autoreconf,
it may be possible that the old config.guess ends up being used. The 
same issue exists for files in /usr/share/libtool/libltdl.

If automake is always more uptodate than libtool, the simplest fix
would be to copy the automake files, but if sometimes libtool is
more uptodate, then I have no idea on what could be done.

The libtool file seem to be more recent today. Closing.
