    See your libtool file and find the place where is "cannot determine absolute
    directory name of" string located. Then you must just define 'dir' variable as a
    absolute path to arts lib before it.

    $ cat libtool
    [...]

            # We need an absolute path.
      ----> dir="/usr/local/arts/lib"
            case "$dir" in
            [\\/]* | [A-Za-z]:[\\/]*) ;;
            *)
              absdir=`cd "$dir" && pwd`
              if test -z "$absdir"; then
                $echo "$modename: cannot determine absolute directory name of \`$dir
    '" 1>&2
