Yes, that is one of the problems.  The other one is this:

| configure.in:6: /usr/local/bin/m4: ERROR: recursion limit of 1024 exceeded, 
use -L<N> to change it
| autom4te: /usr/local/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
| aclocal: autom4te failed with exit status: 1
| FAIL: libtool3.test

The infinite recursion seems to happen with all tests using Libtool.
And checking further:

| libtool5: running libtoolize --version
| libtoolize (GNU libtool) 1.9f

It seems you are using an old unreleased Libtool version
(and I vaguely remember seeing a similar bug a while ago).
My recommendation is to install 1.5.22 or, if you need features
not yet in there, a nightly snapshot of CVS HEAD that can be
downloaded from the Libtool homepage (the branch-2-0 branch
of Libtool has been discontinued, the snapshot is more stable
that it).
