The problem is a fairly recent update to the compiler (coming from
Fedora). The existing libtool package depends explicitly on the old
compiler, so if you upgrade to the new one libtool dependencies are
broken, and afaik there is yet no update from Fedora that fixes this.
Sorry, I have not even had time to check bugzilla to see if this is

Apparently apt does more strict checking of dependencies than yum...
