But I guess libtoolize is wrong.

Is there an upstream bug report?

No need. I have libtool 2.4.2 provided by Fedora 22, but I see in the
libtool 2.4.3 changelog:

- The libtoolize program now advises use of the new Autoconf
AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS declaration. If you follow that advice, all
your developers will need at least autoconf-2.70 and automake-1.13
to rebootstrap your probject. If you still need to support
bootstrap with older Autotools, then you should add the following
to your file:


I guess that should have read "your developers will need at least
autoconf-2.70 OR automake-1.13" since AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS is 
by Automake, but actually I see no reason to use AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS
at all: AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR seems to work just fine.

Yes, as I understand it, AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR is just a single-directory
version of AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS, and they function equivalently.
