Can you show us more lines above this error? The libtool port was just updated to 2.2.8 and then quickly to 2.2.10. I suspect some other port you have on your system, which was built when libtool 2.2.6b was current, needs to be rebuilt for 2.2.10, and thus needs a version bump. Hopefully the lines above this message will help us figure out what that port is.

You may not want to attempt to do so; those other port updates may require the gnudatalanguage update.
