Well, no.  If you will do that then you will end up with a
definitely broken source package which is good only for one
particular version of autotools.  You run as a part of
%build section instead.

The problem is that depending on a version of libtoolize
you need for it an --install option or it such option is not
accepted at all.  To get around that I do in spec files something
like this:

%if %( t="$(libtoolize --version | sed -n '1s/.* //p')"; \
        t="${t%%%%.*}"; [ "$t" -a $t -le 1 ]; echo $?)
%define ltv 2

and later in %prep section

%if %{defined ltv}
%patch1 -p1 -b .m4conf

where such patch modifies accordingly a suitable script.

I did not look at the latest changes yet but source packages with
such spec files worked for me the same in Fedora-rawhide and Fedora
9 and CentoOS5.
