[php-maint] Bug#548015: php5: FTBFS in Lenny (where all build-dependencies are fulfilled!)

Package: php5
Version: 5.2.11.dfsg.1-1
Severity: important

As subject says, php5 fails to build from source on a Lenny system.

It complains suggesting to use autoconf2.13 and then fails with the
following lines:

rebuilding aclocal.m4
libtoolize: unrecognized option `--install'
Try `libtoolize --help' for more information.

I did not save the autoconf2.13 warnings but even if changing to
depending on autoconf2.13 instead of autoconf it still fails with same
lines above.

I suspect it needs a versioned dependency on libtool 2.2.x.

Setting severity to important (not severe) as release managers only
consider FTBFS on up-to-date systems (not backports, even if all
dependencies are met) as RC.
