It could just not be used depending on how autoconf is involved. But
libtool 2.2.6b is not supported anymore by the Ports Collection, see the
20101208 entry in /usr/ports/UPDATING for how to upgrade to libtool 2.4
(and get current versions of the other autotools).

It depends.  If it is just for your personal use, then e.g. your home
directory is also fine.  If you want to make a port of it, then it
should be installed in PREFIX (which is /usr/local by default).
