APR has similar code in buildconf but it uses the order:

libtoolize=`build/PrintPath glibtoolize1 glibtoolize libtoolize15 libtoolize14 libtoolize`

APR and Subversion both prioritize GNU libtool over plain libtool. I'm
not sure why APR prefers libtool 1 over libtool 2, perhaps uncertainty
about how well 2 worked when it was released. Subversion doesn't
currently do that and I see no need for it to do so.

I've committed a modification of the patch that also adds glibtoolize1
and libtool14 in this order:

  glibtoolize libtoolize glibtoolize1 libtoolize15 libtoolize14
