sure, but I never did speak about amd64 and ppc64, and I didn't speak about
dh_autotools but about dh_autoreconf.

yes, the Debian BTS is the right place to prepare for a new Debian port.
There is already work in progress to add arm64, there is a new or1k port.  And
I'm sure there will be a ppc64el port as well.

as I did write in the bug report. The libtool.m4 is outdated. The libtool
package in Debian has a fixed one, and you need to call dh_autoreconf to
update it.

This is not Ubuntu specific, and not unknown.
