If the value is only computed for libtool, then isn't the work 
completely wasted, given that we just overwrite the configure-generated 
libtool with a link to the installed pkgsrc libtool?

If so, it should be safe to just globally set lt_cv_sys_max_cmd_len to 
some random value in (and unset it in 
devel/libtool-base/Makefile so that that one configure script will 
still compute it).
