Problems with libtool when installing GNUnet

If you try to install GNUnet on a debian system, you can run into problems with libtool since at least version 2.x is needed by debian only provides versions like 1.4 or 1.5

Solution:

Get latest libtool from http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool

And just compile it using:
$ tar xvfz libtool-2.4.tar.gz
$ cd libtool
$ ./configure
$ sudo make install

After installation it is import to update your configure files.
Then change back to the GNUnet source directory and run:

$ libtoolize --copy --force
$ aclocal
$ autoconf
