That's utterly bizarre. It works just fine on my system. The port isn't 
broken, but something on your system is. You could try installing 
Darwinports' libtool. You could also try changing the default gcc 
version to 3.3 using

$ sudo gcc_select 3.3

OTOH, I am using the system libtool and successfully used gcc 4.0 to 
build it.
