Sure.  Run this script and it'll build and install the
required tools in a private directory:

    http://people.redhat.com/meyering/autotools-install

I usually invoke it as recommended in --help output:

    autotools-install --prefix=$HOME/autotools --skip-check

That will install unmodified libtool-2.4.
If putting that bin/ directory early in your path doesn't solve it,
you could then build from libtool.git and install into that same
prefix to try the very latest.
