To complete the circle, I finally found these postings that describe the
problem and the solution, in case anyone else runs into this:

The likely cause was an incorrect pkg-plist file in the libtool15 port
at one time, and some files were not removed during the
libtool15->libtool22 upgrade.

Hope that helps,
