I removed those two patches.

Sorry, I hadn't noticed that. The "make install" of libtool-base worked
fine on my NetBSD 1.6.1_STABLE system. (Maybe we should put a dummy
wrapper for autoconf and automake in .tools/bin to fail if used.)

I don't want any libtool to check for BSD/OS 5 with its default "bsdi4".
(And I don't want "bsdi4" used.)

 $ pkg_info -L libtool-base | fgrep / | xargs grep bsdi4

Those above should be "bsdi*". (The patches fixed other things too.)

I will look at this further. But can anyone share any suggestions or
advice on fixing those?
