Yes, I played that game last year and got everything up to date.  But in 
the end I nuked my setup and started from scratch since it started 
acting in very strange ways.  Currently I'm using what comes with msys 
and it seems to be working, minus this one issue with the python macros.

Anyway, I assume you mean update the whole suite?  libtool, autoconf, 
automake?  Are the versions under mingwPort good enough 

automake-1.9.5-mingwPORT.tar.bz2 			libtool-1.5.22-mingwPORT.tar.bz2
