yes. i dont know why the xfs progs have been packaging these autogenerated
files by themselves.
- remove aclocal.m4 from git
- run `aclocal -I m4`
- run `libtoolize -c -f`
- run `autoconf`
- copy the remaining files libtool wanted (normally created by automake, but
acl isnt using automake, so we cant use it to copy the files for us)
