AFAIK, this error means that libtool is can not determine what compiler
is used exactly and libtool is confused.
May be with newer version of libtool, it's works in more strict mode.
As I remember, the solution is to explicitly distinct compiler
tags for C and C++ compilation and specify them in configure/makefiles
for C++ compilation it looks as:
Could you try following simple fix:
1. Open GDALmake.opt.in file
2. Go to line 19
CC = $(LIBTOOL_COMPILE) @CC@
CXX = $(LIBTOOL_COMPILE) @CXX@
CC = $(LIBTOOL_COMPILE) --tag CC @CC@
CXX = $(LIBTOOL_COMPILE) --tag CXX @CXX@
4. Run ./configure and see if it helps
