Re: libtool compilation failures (ITS#795)

RPM calls it without asking. I'm building off of Redhat's 7.0 since it
gives adequate clues as to patching for different run time dirs.

Specifically, $configure implicitly calls libtoolize as far as I can
tell. I made an extremely basic build spec (all it did was include the
source and run configure) and it did the same. Taking out libtool from the
system caused it to barf because the lack of libtool in the system. RPM
seems to require it.
