Why is this a good thing to do? How do I override it and use a
different libtool?

I use APR provided by Debian stable; I don't know exactly which
libtool was used to build APR but Debian stable comes with libtool
1.5.26. I choose to install libtool 2.2.6 since it is much faster
and, particularly when building a debug version, libtool is a
significant part of the Subversion build process. Forcing me to use
APR's libtool increases the build time by 50%. I don't want to have
to build APR in order to control the libtool used to build Subversion.
