perhaps.  But there's no AC_REQUIRE connecting any of the pieces.
If there were an AC_REQUIRE, the expected behavior would be to
force AC_PROG_LIBTOOL to expand before the macro.  Since there is
none, it should expand within.

I seem to recall some comment to the effect that it doesn't always
work because of limited buffer space for the macro expansion.
libtool.m4 is rather large...

Another possible clue is the overall structure of the macro

        if test $with_libtool = yes ; then

Perhaps the intervening AC_ARG_WITH is confusing autoconf.  (Either
way, the documentation provides no useful information).
