It's not configure not finding ar, it's that libtool is broken, because ar was 
not found when libtool was built. You need an available when libtool is first 
installed. Check your pkgsrc libtool binary and you'll find that AR="false" 

Fix the problem and re-install the libtool packages, then try to build
