There are reproducability and GPL issues involved if pkgsrc is to install a
modified libtool.m4, precisely because that file is copied into libtoolized
packages.  That's why the manual patch exists.

I think the fix you need is the one added to pkgsrc in revision 1.19 of
libtool/patches/manual-libtool.m4.  If you wish to add that change to your
local installed copy of libtool.m4, that is fine, but do not add it to the
one that libtool-base installs.  I'll double check that the fix was pushed
back upstream, and will contribute it back myself if not.

The version_type difference is a pkgsrc-ism that is not related to your
problem.  The switch to "linux" in pkgsrc just changes how the .so.* name is
constructed, for reasons documented on tech-pkg in late 2004, and PR
pkg/26633 (it's a "too many major version bumps" issue).
