I have found one important difference between your output and mine.

here I also have:
libtoolize: putting auxiliary files in '.'.
libtoolize: copying file './ltmain.sh'
libtoolize: putting macros in AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIRS, 'm4'.
libtoolize: copying file 'm4/libtool.m4'
libtoolize: copying file 'm4/ltoptions.m4'
libtoolize: copying file 'm4/ltsugar.m4'
libtoolize: copying file 'm4/ltversion.m4'
libtoolize: copying file 'm4/lt~obsolete.m4'
which seems quite important, since you're missing one of the files it is
This looks like the cause of your failures.
libtoolize is part of libtool and it is called by USES containing both
autoreconf and libtool. It should be run automatically. Do you have any
local configuration which could interfere with this? Are you merging
some external ports tree with the official one? Have you modified files
in /usr/ports/Mk? What's in your make.conf?
