personally, i install a copy of libtool 1.4.x into my home directory
(compiled with --prefix=$HOME), and add that to my path for the
user i use to do subversion development work. for compiling ports,
i do an 'su -' and get a clean environment, so it uses the version
from the ports tree. it's the safest way to make sure you don't
mess up the ports tree, as it can be very sensitive to new versions
of things like libtool, which are used all over the place.

fortunately, there will (in the near future) be more work done on
updating libtool in freebsd, without breaking everything, but it's
a HUGE job, and won't happen overnight.
