Gnuastro's configure is now explicitly configured to reject libtool's check if it is in the current directory.

The correction has been pushed to the main repo.

At configure time, Gnuastro needs to check if the system has GNU Libtool installed. On my system, the configure script (following PATH), doesn't look into the current directory. But based on the system configuration, some users might have the current directory in their PATH. Gnuastro comes with its own internal implementation of GNU Libtool. As a result, the configure script will find the libtool in Gnuastro's build and think that the system has GNU Libtool. Therefore if the system doesn't have libtool, or if the libtool isn't GNU, then the BuildProgram check fails.

The libtool check must be corrected to make sure the current directory is not checked when looking for Libtool.
