That error normally happens when running "libtoolize" on a package that
has already been "libtoolized" but with an earlier version. I cannot
imgaine you running libtoolize on purpose, so the only possibilities I
can think of are:-

 - you patched psmisc somehow that caused libtoolize to be run
 - you have sort of date issue that has caused the datestamps to get
   mixed up and thus confused the Makefile dependencies.
