I ran in the exact same problem during last night partial rebuild (everything without the "applications" part).
Most of packages build anyway, so we can say that even though RC1 does not support Jessie 100%, we are probably not far 
away from there. Today I will run the remaining part, so by tomorrow I should be able to say exactly how many packages 
FTBFS due to the missing libtool (at the moment I found pytdeextensions, haven't rebuilt bibletime yet).
IMO, if we end up with only two packages being the problem, we could also consider to fix them for RC1, provided that 
this does not trigger a "cascade rebuild" of several other packages on the build farm.
