Haiku buildtools contains old in-tree softwares

Why Haiku using old-old autoconf and libtool in the buildtools ( https://git.haiku-os.org/buildtools )? I does not mean the "legacy" folder!
- Our autoconf is 2.61, but the latest version is 2.69 (it is a 6 years long span between the two version)
- Our libtool is 1.5.2, while the latest is 2.4.6 (almost 10 years long span)
- Our isl is 1 year old.
I swapped these softwares to the latest version, and tried to make a test build on OSX, but i got some errors at configuring binutils (i have no problem with the original in-tree version). So it seems, there is some not-upstreamed Haiku specific patches and mods in these softwares. IT would be great to upstream these changes (if any), and update the in-tree softwares to the latest version.
