Solving “libtool: Version mismatch error”

By admin | October 18, 2012

After ./configure and make, you get this interesting scenario:

libtool: Version mismatch error.  This is libtool 2.4.2 Debian-2.4.2-1ubuntu1, but the
libtool: definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.4.
libtool: You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.4.2 Debian-2.4.2-1ubuntu1
libtool: and run autoconf again.
make[5]: *** [perl.lo] Error 63

The solution?

autoreconf -ivf
