That problem was reported when the M1 was first released. I understand
the problem has been corrected in an OS X update.

It looks like the M1 needs to be updated. OS X 10.2.3 is the latest:

@GCC-Farm-MiniMac ~ % sw_vers
ProductName:    macOS
ProductVersion: 11.2
BuildVersion:   20D64

Oh yeah... You will confuse the hell out of Autotools if you install
libtool without the g prefix. Apparently Autotools does not do a
simple grep to see if libtool is Apple's one.

    % libtool -V
    Apple Inc. version cctools-977.1

Autotools also ignores envars LIBTOOL and LIBTOOLIZE, so there's no
way easy way to fix it (the missing g prefix).
