This looks fallout from the recent libtool changes. It seems that Maho 
has written the port on a system that is using the old way of handling 

By default, every port will use its included version of libtool. If that 
one is too old and doesn't work, you will get the error above. In this 
case, you need to force the port to use the libtool version provided by 
the system:

This change should be enough unless the version of classpath included 
with gcj 4.1 has its own libtool. If so, this will need to be replaced 
by /usr/local/bin/libtool as well. You can probably do this manually by 
symlinking for now. For a later release, it would need to be fixed properly.
