I don't think it's related. That thread is about the error message

Strange. I've never seen this before. (I'm the ImageMagick port

I think the above are normal messages when installing most ports.

This message I'm not sure about.

You should not do this. It may have worked in this case, but it will
cause you problems elsewhere. This masks your system's /usr/bin/
libtool, which is not a GNU libtool and not compatible with GNU libtool.

Have you perhaps at some point messed with your /usr/bin/libtool? Or
do you have another libtool somewhere else, like in /usr/local/bin/
libtool or /sw/bin/libtool or somewhere else in your $PATH?
What version number of Mac OS X is on both systems? What version
number of Xcode? What kind of processor?
