Yes, but this is just a warning, and autogen.sh returns zero status,
which means successful completion.  Proceed with configure and make.

In future, to check for successful completion status, use your shell to
report it, for example:

$ sh autogen.sh
$ echo $?

The warning is for the author of the Makefile.am or someone willing to
maintain it ... you'd have to know how to add ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS properly.

Chances are the last person who maintained Makefile.am either wasn't
using your version of libtoolize, or didn't think the warning was worth

If you'd like to fix it, study the documentation or other packages that
use this feature.
