hmmm ... cref:

"People upgrading old packages to newer autotools are likely to face
this issue because older Automake versions used to call libtoolize.
Therefore old build scripts do not call libtoolize.

Since Automake 1.6, it has been decided that running libtoolize was none
of Automake's business. Instead, that functionality has been moved into
the autoreconf command (see Using autoreconf). If you do not want to
remember what to run and when, just learn the autoreconf command.
Hopefully, replacing existing or scripts by a
call to autoreconf should also free you from any similar incompatible
change in the future.

and since, on my system:

% automake --version
	automake (GNU automake) 1.9.6

and on stock Tiger,

% /usr/bin/automake --version
	automake (GNU automake) 1.6.3

also, just fyi, as for the use of 'traditional' bootstrap scripts, cref

"Many packages come with a script called or,
that will just call aclocal, libtoolize, gettextize or autopoint,
autoconf, autoheader, and automake in the right order. Actually this is
precisely what autoreconf can do for you. If your package has such a or script, consider using autoreconf. That
should simplify its logic a lot (less things to maintain, yum!), it's
even likely you will not need the script anymore, and more to the point
you will not call aclocal directly anymore."
