Turns out this is a non-bug.  Exists in libtool-1.3.5 but not in 1.5.x.
I have verified this by configuring both on a FreeBSD-recent machine.

To conclude: everyone seeing this error, you may point to this thread[1]
and tell the respective package authors to _please_ upgrade their
shipped libtool (re-libtoolize with newer Libtool package and take care
of up-to-date Libtool m4 macros).

Thanks everybody for your help and attention.  Many thanks to Fred Cox
for providing me with shell access (adding him to THANKS).

Another note: Since /usr/bin/objformat is supposed to go (marked as
obsolete since ages according to manpage), the test ought to be
reworked before the next major FreeBSD release.

Moreover, branch-2-0 and HEAD seem to have problems w.r.t BSD Make.
This is a separate issue and will be dealt with separately.
