> EMBOSS 6.3.1 is now available

First time I have built EMBOSS on linux.  This is an x86_64 system,
Mandriva 2010.0, gcc 4.4.1.

Unpacked emboss, applied the patch, in the top directory:
#seems happy
#trundles and then does this

/bin/sh ../libtool --tag=CC   --mode=compile gcc -DPACKAGE_NAME=\"\"
-I.  -I./ -I/usr/include/gd -DPREFIX=\"/usr/local\" -DBUILD_DIR=\".\"
-DDRV_DIR=\".\" -DEMBOSS_TOP=\"/home/lclsrc/EMBOSS\"  -DAJ_LinuxLF
-DLENDIAN  -O2  -DNO_AUTH -D__amd64__   -MT pdfutils.lo -MD -MP -MF
.deps/pdfutils.Tpo -c -o pdfutils.lo pdfutils.c
libtool: Version mismatch error.  This is libtool 2.2.6b, but the
libtool: definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.2.6.
libtool: You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.2.6b
libtool: and run autoconf again.
make[2]: *** [pdfutils.lo] Error 63

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/lclsrc/EMBOSS-6.3.1/plplot'

Those libtool instructions might as well say "wave your magic wand and
turn lead into gold".  What, exactly, are the commands to run here?
