Need help debugging apr port

I am trying to fix the apr port.
There have been some recent changes to the autoconf
and libtool in the ports Makefile rules which is causing problems.

Question 1:
  How can I reproduce the jail environment that bento uses
  to build a port, i.e. I want the jail to have no ports installed,
  so that when I build the port, the necessary dependent packages will
  be installed.

Question 2:
  If autoconf-2.57 is installed, it looks like there is only
  a binary /usr/local/bin/autoconf257 installed, and not /usr/local/bin/autoconf.
  The apr port is expecting a binary named autoconf.

  How do people typically deal with this problem?

The full build logs are here:
