I've had problems building the ports gnupg-1.4.6_1 and
intltool-0.35.1 using 'portmanager -u', or 'make
install' in the appropriate directories of my ports
tree.  I keep encountering the messages(my comments in
[] are not part of the message):

WARNING: `automake-1.9' is missing on your system. You
should only need it if you modified `Makefile.am'[or
another such file], ...

and

WARNING: `autoconf' is missing on your system.  You
should only need it if you modified `configure.in' [or
another such file]...

which are repeated as the build seems to go into an
infinite loop.  I haven't modified these files (at
least manually), and I've the following packages
installed on my system:

autoconf-2.13.000227_5
autoconf-2.53_3
autoconf-2.59_2
autoconf-2.61
automake-1.4.6_2
automake-1.5_2,1
automake-1.9.6
gmake-3.81_1
gnu-autoconf-2.61
gnu-automake-1.10

I'm running FreeBSD-6.1-RELEASE.  Are these problems
caused by the recent update of the gnu-autoconf and
gnu-automake ports, that dispensed with
gnu-autoconf-2.59 and gnu-automake-1.9, which may have
been used to set up the latest gnupg and intltool
ports?  I'm confused about how my system is dealing
with all these versions of autoconf and automake --
this is not the first time they've caused problems --
surely there's a better way to handle this, that
doesn't require these redundancies, and create build
problems?  Is there a good way to work around these
problems?
