Be aware of the changes that were made to the source repos, as Martin
already said, but...

This looks like your installation is either b0rk3ned, or MacPorts
(???  wild guess) installs a wrapper for aclocal that automagically
switches down to an older version.

I didn't have much luck myself with the bootstrap script, too (it does
too much magic for me) so I ended up doing the autoconf stuff myself
with the same versions you have, which works out fine for me now.
