Apparently it doesn't run libtoolize, and there is some libtool stuff
checked in to CVS.

The INSTALL file is out of date; it refers to ancient versions of

  You need to have automake, autoconf, and libtool installed on your system in
  order to set up the build environment. Known versions that work are automake
  1.4, autoconf 2.13, and libtool 1.2f.

I think we have reached the point where it is reasonable to require
autoconf 2.5x, automake 1.8ish, and libtool 1.4 or 1.5.  It is
arguably more reasonable to require those than autoconf213 or
automake14, which are at least on NetBSD systems typically not
installed unless needed to support old software.

The good news is that lwp seems to work (with warnings) with the
modern autotools.

I did the following which enabled a build, but I got some complaints
from libtoolize (and did --force).  testlwp worked.
