libtool compilation failures (ITS#795)

Although a direct compile (./configuure after untaring) does correctly use
build/ltmain.sh in the source tree to create /libtool in the main directory,
an RPM build (which calls /usr/bin/libtoolize) generates a libtool from outside
the openldap build tree. In the case of OpenLdap 2.0.4, the result is a build
using either libtool 1.3.4 (rh6.2) or 1.3.5 (rh70). Both version's have an
ltmain.sh which do not have



in its definition. The slapd/backend-ldbm makefile calls libtool with
On Redhat 6.2/7.0 systems (and likely any RPM-based system with libtool >
an RPM build fails.

This is either an issue specific to OpenLDAP's build system, or possibly to
new configuration in libtool 1.3.4/1.3.5. In any case, it maybe wise for
OpenLDAP to 
correctly handle all libtool versions or maybe use 1.3.5 out of the box.
