Still getting the same problem, how can I get around the problem that 
upgrading outdated ports stalls at gnudatalanguage?  (Apart from 
uninstalling GDL).

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.
