Dear Maintainer,

For the ppc64el architecture in Ubuntu, since this package uses libtool, a full
autoreconf is necessary instead of just config.{sub,guess} updates with
autotools-dev. This is because we need new libtool macros for ppc64el.

In Ubuntu, the attached patch was applied to achieve the following:

  * Use dh-autoreconf instead of autotools-dev to fix FTBFS on ppc64el.

Thanks for considering the patch.

Logan Rosen
