Hmm... you should read the FreeBSD documentation on autotools.
I'll bet you made symlinks in /usr/local/bin from say autoconf to 
autoconf259 and similiar.

The other ports (/usr/ports/devel/auto* and /usr/ports/libtool*) are 
customized specifically for ports and only intented to build ports via 
the ports system.

[Note, if you "know" what you are doing, you can get away with using 
them for apreq... but I wouldn't recommend it]

This might help you:
Undo your symlinks

Install these 3 /usr/ports/devel 7>ls -d gnu-*
drwxr-xr-x  2 root  wheel  -  512B Nov 26 19:09:20 2005 gnu-autoconf/
drwxr-xr-x  3 root  wheel  -  512B Nov 26 19:09:20 2005 gnu-automake/
drwxr-xr-x  2 root  wheel  -  512B Nov 26 19:09:20 2005 gnu-libtool/

you'll get a


/usr/local/gnu-autotools/bin to your path BEFORE /usr/local/bin

Then try again.
