I am not sure how this happened. I was having some problems with php shared
modules and decided to update my ports collection to see if the problem was
fixed. At that time I could no longer build apache because of the libtool
problem. I tried rebuilding libtool port which didn't help.
I found a post saying that you need to pass CC=gcc to configure to prevent
libtool from using the --tag=CC but I couldn't figure out how this would
occur using the FreeBSD ports framework.
Your patch is allowing me to build now. :)
I am confused how everyone else is getting there ports to compile.
