Interesting... I'm not sure how to resolve this then. Apparently
/usr/lib/libqt* isn't the answer...

automake is 1.4 (very close to RH Rawhide). libtool is older (1.3.6), but as I
recall there were problems in the newest version. You may want to consider not
using AMTAR until it's sorted out, or adding a BuildRequires: libtool >= 1.4 to
the spec.
