For now OpenBSD is still using libtool 1.5. 

The OpenBSD port people have come up with a replacement for libtool,
but for now they don't have the 'libtoolize' and macros support ready,
so the ability of running autoreconf with GNU libtool 1.5 is still
needed, at least for a few more months (lets say until Xorg 7.7)

PS: for xf86-video-glide it doesn't matter, since this driver is Linux
