According to NEWS, 'libtoolize --install' was added in libtool 1.9b (in
2004); however, 'info libtool "invoking libtoolize"' on libtool 2.4
still fails to document this option.  I also checked the latest
libtool.git, where it is still missing, eight years later.

It would be nice to have this documentation added, along with hints of
the appropriate workaround for libtool 1.5.22 still in use in RHEL 5,
and still as the minimum version of libtool supported by gnulib.
