Some packages may use custom versions of libtool.  You should generally
use the version of libtool shipped with the package.  If you replace
any component of a build environment, you are responsible to ensure
the resulting build environment is consistent.

Not true.  OpenLDAP will use the version of libtool provided with
the package unless you muck with it (such as by running libtoolize
or something).

Or if you don't muck with the provided libtool.

Only those who muck with the provided packaging have had problems.
Those who muck are on their own.
