something is borked with your autotools and/or libtool. I'd suggest to
delete all of the following ports.
This may be more than necessary, but the chance is greater to catch the
culprit ... ;->
Afterwards, just build your postgresql port (or anything else), the
deleted ports will be reinstalled as required.
Another point worth giving a shot is deleting old work directories (you
might want to try this before nuking your auto* ports)
Either use portsclean -C (comes with portupgrade) or your preferred
shell poison like
cd /usr/ports && find . -name "work" -type d | xargs rm -rf
