  FreeBSD ports repository

  Modified files:
  Conversion to a single libtool environment.
  * devel/libtool13 is no more (requiem mors pacem)
  * devel/libtool15 now installs as ${LOCALBASE}/bin/libtool etc.
    (ie: no versioning on the binaries and scripts)
  * USE_AUTOTOOLS= libtool:XX:inc has been deprecated
    Where possible, ports should simply set GNU_CONFIGURE=yes and use  the pre-packaged version of libtool that comes as part of the  source distribution
  * all the legacy hacks to libtool that we have been saddled with over  the years have been removed. (eg: .la files are now installed)    This brings us in line not only with Linux distributions, but also pkgsrc.
  * libtool now understands, and correctly handles, "nonstandard" compilers
    such as g++34, gcc295, etc. etc.
  This could not have happened without the truly outstanding work from kris,
  not only putting up with me, but also running countless builds, both on
  dosirak and pointyhat.  I am truly indebted to him.
