Hmmz, don't they use the databases/mysql* ports? Anyway switching to
devel/libtool15 should be flawless as the latter is now the same as the

From the DEPRECATED=devel/libtool15 is now stock and should be used instead
line in devel/gnu-libtool/Makefile Ade makes it clear that
"everything should work" (tm). If it does not I guess you contact him
before 1st of June.

Testing can show the presence of bugs, but not their absence.
