    I'm trying to compile a .cpp file but I must install libssh2. I have downloaded the package from and when I enter: ./buildconf I'm getting:

    Neither libtoolize nor glibtoolize could be found!

    I don't know what to do, I have included in the header libssh2.h ( #include ) and also the file does exists in the same folder where I have the source file what I'm trying to compile.

    When Homebrew installs libtool on a system that already has libtool (MacOS 10.12, Sierra, in my case), it installs to /usr/local/Cellar/libtool en prepends the existing installation with a 'g'. Thus, weirdly, one ends up with /usr/local/glibtool en /usr/local/glibtoolize. When avrdude's ./bootstrip could not find libtoolize, changing the command to glibtoolize solved to problem.
