 Yes, that is #46582.

 Yes, I have also seen the problem be intermittent on my system, which I am
 not able to explain either.

 > This is happening because of a version skew between the automake and
 libtool ports. The libtool port installs
 /opt/local/share/libtool/Makefile.in which seems to be used to create the
 makefile for libltdl in graphviz.  Macports contains version 1.15 of
 automake and version 2.4.4 of libtool which is compatible with version
 1.14.1 of automake.  I'm not sure exactly how this all works (Gnu
 autotools is not easy to understand) but upgrading libtool to version
 2.4.5 fixes the problem.  The patch to do this is

 Yes, I also do not understand autotools fully. The request to update
 libtool to 2.4.5 is #46635.

 I am still waiting to receive the main.log from the reporter tanertekin so
 that I can either close this ticket as a duplicate or address the issue if
 it is a different issue.
