Frankly, I encountered the same problem, then tried to uninstall the old
stuff (not really, just moved it away, includes and libs), but still
kept getting the same error message.
*Uninstalling* doesn't work because of those many dependencies. (I
wanted to "make update" in among others glib2, after glib2 was still out
of date after upgrading using the latest snapshot packages.)
PS: I thought we have a tweaked libtool in our tree/ports?
