aclocal.m4 is generated, so patching that file isn't really a good idea. Do
you have any idea about what particular libtool version that has this issue

I would rather try to upgrade my release-building host to such a libtool
version and let that create a suitable aclocal.m4 than to start doing local
patches like this...
