So the bug at hand may be that we aren't listing libtool as a
dependency? Oh yes, and I know why... we always only listed the
Subsurface dependency and I just with this release dropped the awkward
phrasing we used to have around libusb. 

Jef, what else is required?

Debian: libtool autoconf
Fedora: libtool autoconf

(wow, even the same package names)
