You try to install a very ancient version of linux base port. Current
(but yet outdated one) is linux_base-8. But I'll suggest to install
linux_base-fc3 or even newest linux_base-fc4 (one of them should
become a default one in the nearest future). To use fc4 just do:

# echo "OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE_PORT=fc4" >> /etc/make.conf

...and all other linux ports should use this port as a base one.

Libtool is outdated. The current version is 1.5.22. You may consider
to read /usr/ports/UPDATING.
BTW, Did you use up-to-date port's tree? Did you use portupgrade or
else to use up-to-date ports?
