The variable SED is unset in the generated libtool script. This is
usually due to the ltmain.sh being from a different version of libtool
than the libtool.m4 that aclocal found. Which is a little odd as the
port has use_autoreconf yes, and depends_build on autoconf, automake and

Do you have a more complete build log? I'd like to see what happens at
the autoreconf stage.
