This sounds like you haven't ran make install, only the compilation 
phase happened so far. In this stage libtool script are present and only 
during the install phase will libtool "finalize" the process and replace 
scripts with the actual executables.

This script is trying to do some bad things including linking an executable (lt-syslog-ng, I believe.)  We do not have a linker that will run on the target system.  We cannot link anything.
