This is a byproduct of the new dynamic root layout in -CURRENT.
Basically, older versions of libtool try to do file on
/usr/lib/libc.so. Recent versions of -CURRENT put libc.so in /lib.
Therefore, this fails. I haven't noticed any real problems because of
this, but I have reported it to the libtool maintainer, ade at .

Configure arguments? No. However, you can use the -m option to pass
make arguments (e.g. -DWITH_FOO). To pass configure arguments, you'd
have to edit the port Makefiles directly.
