Which version of aclocal do you use?
(I have 1.4-p4)

I suspect this is also the result of some mismatch in the build tools.
Are you handupgrading autoconf/aclocal, etc?
The list of versions I have installed on my box follows. I can verify
that this combination works:

aclocal (GNU automake) 1.4-p4
autoheader (GNU Autoconf) 2.53
libtoolize (GNU libtool) 1.4.2a
automake (GNU automake) 1.4-p4
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.53

Can you test it with the above versions?
