The libtool port is being skipped, because the variant that is  
installed is wrong but MacPorts hasn't been told to fix variants.

The reason you're getting this message is that a recent bugfix to  
MacPorts caused it to start recording platform default variants such  
as +darwin; you're being told that you should consider using the -- 
enforce-variants flag as the warning message says to make the  
installed-port database match what it's supposed to be, but you don't  
have to do it right now (or possibly ever).
