Missing 'ltmain.sh'

Run libtoolize on fallback and check for LT_INIT

Most of the component in git use LT_PREREQ and LT_INIT now.
The git version of xfce4-dev-tools supports this.

But autogen.sh on a clean git clone with an old xdt-autogen doesn't run libtilize, yet.
This is not a problem, since they need to use the git version of xfce4-dev-tools.
But the same problem exists for xfce4-dev-tools.

If you have either an old xdt-autogen or none at all. autogen.sh on a clean git clone of xfce4-dev-tools won't run libtoolize and mis ltmain.sh for that reason.

The attached patch solves this problem when you don't have a xdt-autogen at all.
(the patch also includes a changed check for LT_INIT instead of LT_PREREQ, since LT_INIT is mandatory, where LT_PREREQ isn't)

To solve the problem when you have an old xdt-autogen.
You should either remove that file first.
Or we should always run the fallback commands in autogen.sh for the xfce4-dev-tools.
Why would it be better to run xdt-autogen on xfce4-dev-tools instead of the commands we know it will run?

I fix that that in xdt, but I keep the LT_PREREQ check, it's wise to set a minimum version and this way we enforce that.
