I'm trying to install PandaSeq as a non-administrator on a Red Hat server but the compiler is returning the following error:

checking ltdl.h usability... no
checking ltdl.h presence... no
checking for ltdl.h... no
configure: error: *** ltld required, install libtool library.

So I verified all the dependencies are installed:

whereis libtool : /usr/bin/libtool /usr/share/libtool
whereis zlib : /usr/include/zlib.h /usr/local/zlib /usr/share/man/man3/zlib.3.gz
whereis libbz2 : /usr/lib64/libbz2.so
whereis bzip2 : /usr/bin/bzip2 /usr/local/bzip2 /usr/share/man/man1/bzip2.1.gz

The compiler commands I'm using are:

git clone http://github.com/neufeld/pandaseq.git/
cd pandaseq
./configure --prefix=/my/dir

Any ideas how to make the compiler see libtool ?
