Actually, Bradley's VM has 2.4.6 installed, and I've been building Qt 5.4.1 just fine with that.

I've checked the build output from an older 5.4.0 full build, and it gives 0 hits on libtool. That doesn't mean of course that your CI system builds things the same way. I can only suggest that you try my port with your MacPorts install, and then hunt down any differences that might explain your issue.

devans at macports gave a nice trick (and utterly annoying on a "production" system) to build a port with only the required ports available:

%> port deactivate active
%> port build foo

I don't think I have to explain?
