Strange; the likeliest thing I can think of is that something strange
is going on with libtool.  I know it's a dumb idea, but perhaps there
are some old files lurking around from a previous build with a
different version of the tools?

(I build Libevent 2.0 and 2.1 regularly with OSX 10.8.5, and they work
okay for me)
