OK, feel free to ignore my advice as you see fit.

Looking back through the thread, you asked if I had installed any non-ports software or some other variant of libtool: the answer was no. I didn't see any advice, so I took the initiative to find out what libtool might be doing. I did discover that there was a dependency on a deprecated version of libtool (1.3 where 1.5 seems to be the current/preferred version). And I was able to get around my problem by working from the distfiles and leaving out whatever the ports system was doing (that was where the inability to build shlibs was getting in the mix). As noted in my followup post to the list, once I installed from the {$PORTDIR}/work/<portname> directory, all went well and I have now resolved my problem.

Apologies if I offended. The insight on libtool is appreciated.
