Dear Maintainer,

Currently this package FTBFS when compiled in new architectures (as ppc64el)
that is not supported on the outdated package autotools files, mainly because
it fails to understand that the new architectures has support for shared
libraries, as shown below: 

The full log could be found at the package log on our buildd entries at:

        dh_install: pktools missing files (usr/lib/*/, 
        make: *** [binary] Error 2
        dpkg-buildpackage: error: fakeroot debian/rules binary gave error exit 
status 2

I created this patch that call autoreconf to updates the autotool files during
the build, as suggest by the following wiki:

I tested this patch and it worked fine.

Thank you,
