I suppose it would, but there are many many of these errors also by
linking libraries build in the test directory, would cost some time
and I am not able to triage automake/libtool issues.
Is that the solution upstream wants to use?

I attached a patch for https://buildroot.org/ to pick the current
lttng rc2. using buildroot is easy (but timeconsuming if you build the
cross-compiler aswell):

make O=/tmp/build defconfig
make O=/tmp/build menuconfig

Pick your hosts/prefered architecture in Target options
In toolchain menu pick kernel headers + c library type (glibc for me)

Target packages -> Libraries -> Other -> lttng-libust
Target packages -> Debugging, profiling and benchmark -> lttng-tools

make O=/tmp/build
