  CC       libltdl/libltdl_libltdlc_la-slist.lo
  GEN      doc/libtool.1
Can't locate Locale/ in @INC (you may need to install the Locale::gettext module) (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib64/perl5/5.22.0/x86_64-linux /usr/local/lib64/perl5/5.22.0 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.22.0/x86_64-linux /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.22.0 /usr/lib64/perl5/5.22.0/x86_64-linux /usr/lib64/perl5/5.22.0 .) at /usr/bin/help2man line 29.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/help2man line 29.

Expected Results:  
emerge should also install dev-perl/Local-gettext to complete libtool install

emerge  dev-perl/Locale-gettext solved this
Comment 1 comicfans44 2015-08-05 14:48:14 UTC
seems it's caused by perl version upgrade and module not rebuild

    sys-devel/libtool: force disable help2man w/releases #556512

    We want to make sure that help2man isn't run inadvertently (since we
    explicitly do not depend on it w/releases), so set HELP2MAN to `false`
    so it hard fails immediately.

    We also fix the build-aux/ patch as it triggers rebuilding of
    build-aux/ which triggers rebuilding of doc/libtool.1 which
    requires `help2man`.
