The FreeBSD ports tree doesn't yet support libtool 1.4 (it's an
interdependency nightmare, since so many ports currently require
'libtool', but really require 'libtool 1.3', and until you flip the
switch it's impossible to tell which ones they are), but there is
no problem with just installing it yourself.  Requiring 1.4 means that
anyone developing on FreeBSD will have to install a custom libtool,
which is irritating, but not a show stopper.  It will create some
problems with the way the current FreeBSD port of apr works, but
nothing unsolvable (i think).
