Ok. This is a problem. I'm trying to build something that is not in
ports and it needs libtool. I installed the ports libtool but it did
not work. The application I'm trying to build is choking with the
following error:

configure.in:212: warning: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL is m4_require'd but is not m4_defun'd
configure.in:212: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL is required by...
configure.in:50: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
autoreconf: /usr/local/gnu-autotools/bin/autoconf failed with exit status: 1

Is there a gnu-libtool package? If there is I don't see it. There were
a gnu-autoconf and gnu-automake packages but for some reason I don't
see libtool in any of the standard packages for 6.2.

Any ideas?
