I thought that too.  Prior to posting, I had libtool13, 14, and 15 
installed.  I removed all of them and then installed 15 from ports.  Yet 
the error persists.  It is interesting that I could install libiconv 
from packages without error.  But even after that, I still did not have 
/usr/local/lib/libiconv.la.  Also after installing libiconv from a 
package, 'portupgrade -f libiconv' ends with the error I described above.
