I've been struggling with this for days. It's mystifying to me that it was so 
hard to get working. I'm using Mountain Lion, Xcode 4.5, and iOS 6. I wonder if 
perhaps MacPorts is now installing newer versions of the tools required by the 
install guide.

At any rate, I just got Linphone fully built earlier today. To fix your 
'install-sh' problem, you just need to create an empty file that is required by 
newer versions of autoconf:
> 'touch submodules/linphone/install-sh

At this point, I was stumped for a very long time by another error: 
> ./configure: line 4543: syntax error near unexpected token `HAVE_MD5SUM,test'
> ./configure: line 4543: `AM_CONDITIONAL(HAVE_MD5SUM,test -n $MD5SUM)'
As it turned out, the problem was again triggered by a line in
> error: 'AM_PROG_CC_STDC': this macro is obsolete.

The solution was to edit submodules/linphone/ and delete the line 
that says:
You will need to 'make veryclean' or run 'cd build/linphone; ./'

Incidentally, while working through this I also figured out the necessary steps 
to replace MacPorts with brew which has the advantage of being more 
self-contained and easily reversible than MacPorts.
1) Install brew: (instructions at
2) Install dependencies:
brew install coreutils automake autoconf libtool intltool 
brew install wget pkgconfig cmake gmake yasm doxygen ImageMagick optipng
brew tap homebrew/dupes
brew install xz homebrew/dupes/grep

Linphone is hardcoded to look for a lot of tools in MacPorts-specific 
locations, (e.g. /opt/local/bin) so I also had to create a link from there to 
brew's standard install location: 'ln -s /usr/local /opt/local'

Good luck!
