I have successfully built bind9 under Linux before, but today I received:

===> Buildlinking for bind-9.2.2
libpattern="/usr/lib/libpthread.*";      if [ ! -f $lafile ]; then
case ELF in                                      Mach-O) _lib=`/bin/ls -1
$libpattern 2>/dev/null | /usr/bin/head -1` ;;  *)      _lib=`/bin/ls -1r
$libpattern 2>/dev/null | /usr/bin/head -1` ;;  esac;
if [ -n "$_lib" ]; then                          /bin/true "Creating
libtool archive: $lafile";
/tmp/pkgsrc/net/bind9/work.k3/.buildlink/bin/.fake-la $_lib > $lafile;
fi;                                                     fi
libtool: link: the `-version-info' option requires an argument
Try `libtool --help --mode=link' for more information.
libtool: install: `.la' is not a valid libtool archive
Try `libtool --help --mode=install' for more information.
/bin/sed: can't read
/tmp/pkgsrc/net/bind9/work.k3/.buildlink/.tmp/inst/.la: No such file or
*** Error code 2

I have the /tmp/pkgsrc/net/bind9/work.k3/.buildlink/.tmp/inst/ directory,
but it is empty.

The .wrapper.log has:
/usr/bin/libtool --quiet --mode=compile /tmp/pkgsrc/net/bind9/work.k3/.buildlink
/bin/gcc -c nonempty.c
/usr/bin/gcc -c nonempty.c -fPIC -DPIC -o .libs/nonempty.o
/usr/bin/gcc -c nonempty.c -o nonempty.o
/usr/bin/libtool --quiet /tmp/pkgsrc/net/bind9/work.k3/.buildlink/bin/gcc
-o .la  nonempty.lo -rpath /tmp/pkgsrc/net/bind9/work.k3/.buildlink/.tmp/inst
/usr/bin/libtool --quiet --mode=install /bin/cp .la

This has:
$ libtool --version (GNU libtool) 1.4a (1.641.2.255 2001/05/22 10:39:30)

I see that the net/bind9/Makefile has:
USE_BUILDLINK2=         yes
USE_LIBTOOL=            yes
LIBTOOL_OVERRIDE+=      ${WRKSRC}/lib/bind/libtool

Neither of these exists.
I will need to learn more about this.

Any ideas?
