In that it's the only relatively major structural change in ports I'm
aware of recently, and I had the same problem with 2 seemingly
unrelated ports at the same time (earlier today, in fact) after
pulling myself across that boundary, both of which use libtool.  I
have only the vaguest clue what libtool actually does; the two just
seemed to come about at the same time.  I've never seen the info
errors before either, and I've built both ports before.
