Building from git fails with new libtool

Description

I'm building gst on Ubuntu 8.10 which is using libtool 2.2.4. When running configure many macros appear to be broken. And make then fails. My rough guess is that build-aux/libtool-tag.m4 is using a macro that no longer exists in 2.2.4.

Attached is the output from the autoreconf and configure scripts.

The pertinent (I believe) lines are at line 302:
./configure: line 17114: =$: command not found

Yes, you should use "autoreconf -fv", not "-fvi", to use exactly the libtool that is in the repository. I'll switch to 2.2.x soonish though.

Aha!

Great news, I was hoping I wasn't going to have to tear apart my toolchain to get it to work.
