I hit a snag building pharo debug VM...

$ cd build.linux32x86/pharo.cog.spur/build.debug.
$ ./mvm
"libtool: unrecognized option `--preserve-dup-deps'"

I see...
$ ./libtool --version
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.4.2 (1.922.2.53 2001/09/11 03:18:52)

but preserve-dup-deps was added a couple of months later 2001-11-27

and libtool latest stable version is 2.5.6 (2015/02/15)

By doing... $ sudo chattr +i libtool

I found libtool was created by configure...
   rm: cannot remove 'libtool': Operation not permitted
   chmod: changing permissions of 'libtool': Operation not permitted

$ ./mvm invokes...

in which folder is  ltmain.sh  having...
TIMESTAMP=" (1.922.2.53 2001/09/11 03:18:52)"

What is involved in updating libtool?

btw, this is on 32-bit Debian 8 Jessie, and...

        CogVM source as per VMMaker.oscog-eem.2134
        Move the SpurPlanningCompactor to tip.  It is now ready for prime time.
