When calling aclocal19 it can't find the definition for AC_PROG_LIBTOOL. aclocal19 only searches in /usr/local/share/aclocal19, but not in /usr/local/share/aclocal/ where libtool.m4 contains this definition.
As a workaround for the moment I did a
echo /usr/local/share/aclocal > /usr/local/share/aclocal19/dirlist
aclocal knows about this dirlist file and parses the directories in there too. So a fix woul be to add such a file with the right content to the port.
