Looks normal so far.

The extras/tools folder is meant to replace the need for MacPorts/brew
so you should rather use one or the other.
We advise to move MacPorts/brew out of your path and use extras/tools
(at this point libtool --version will fail and GNU libtool will be built).

The libtool binary we build on OSX ends up being 'libtool' even though
there's a also glibtool symlink.
Note that we don't apply any patch to libtool source.
So all in all I think this patch is not needed.
