Building from tarballs would be unaffected if we bumped the libtool
requirement. Only people running autogen.sh would need the newer
libtool. Libtool 1.5 dates from 2003.

The current code is bit like magic, it dates back to r850874 and fixes
issue 2031. While we have two C++ libraries, libsvnjavahl and
libsvn_auth_kwallet, the extra library is only used for LINK_JAVAHL_CXX
not LINK_CXX_LIB. I think that means nobody builds kwallet with libtool
1.4 possibly because such old systems do not have KDE or are server-only
for Subversion.
