I don't see why not...
1) the libtool scripts are contained within the source tree, no external
packages are needed. Just like auto* are not needed to rebuild a
package, unless Makefile changes are being made. (And even then libtool
doesn't need to get refreshed.
2) The infrastructure libtool uses is the released binutils code.

This is an option, but I don't favour it.
