[Aboriginal] toybox sed screwing up libtool?

So, on irc you reported a bug, and I tried to reproduce it:

Build root-filesystem-i686, chroot into it with toolchain attached. So
that's something like:

  tar xvzf root-filesystem-i686.tar.gz
  tar xvzf native-compiler-i686.tar.gz
  mv native-compiler-i686 root-filesystem-i686/usr/overlay
  chroot root-filesystem-i686 /sbin/init.sh
  sh /usr/overlay/init
  cd /home
  wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/m4/m4-1.4.17.tar.gz
  tar xvzf m4-1.4.17.tar.gz
  ./configure --prefix=/usr
  make install
  cd ..
  wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libtool/libtool-2.4.6.tar.gz
  tar xvzf libtool-2.4.6.tar.gz
  cd libtool-2.4.6
  ./configure --prefix=/usr
  make install
  cd ..
  wget http://libarchive.org/downloads/libarchive-3.1.2.tar.gz
  cd libarchive-3.1.2
  libtoolize --force --copy

At this point, you said I should see:

Somasis> `libtoolize --force --copy` alone seems to trigger the error
<Somasis> sorry; the error is "libtoolize:   error:
AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS([m4trace]) conflicts with ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS=-I

But what I did see is:

# libtoolize --force --copy
/bin/libtoolize: line 159: func_add_hook: command not found
/bin/libtoolize: line 186: func_add_hook: command not found
/bin/libtoolize: line 257: func_add_hook: command not found
/bin/libtoolize: line 291: func_add_hook: command not found
/bin/libtoolize: line 296: func_options: command not found
/bin/libtoolize: line 1589: func_verbose: command not found

And so on for several dozen pages...

I have no idea what's wrong because I don't use libtool, ever, for
anything. It was created to make non-elf systems behave like elf, and
Linux has been ELF since 1996:


So I don't know what success looks like here.
