i’ve had a look again at libtool.m4 and don’t really get why RM is set wrong. 
obviously the _LT_CONFIG macro literally requires _LT_FILEUTILS_DEFAULT, which 
should set RM to ‘rm -f’. I also found several uses of $RM with different 
options, sometimes even ‘-f’. So actually i am not sure what would be the best 
solution here.

right now i could change the patch like proposed by Eric Blake to the one i 
attached. It will at least fix the direct problem i encountered. But maybe for 
the long term, someone should check and maintain the whole libtool.m4 file?!

kind regards
