I suppose your package sources are broken. How many files are in your copy
of "pkgsrc/graphics/tiff/patches"? It shouldn't be more than three.

Because the there is no patch for "Makefile":

tron@lyssa:/usr/pkgsrc/graphics/tiff>grep ^+++ patches/patch-*
patches/patch-aa:+++ man/    Fri Nov 28 02:19:36 1997
patches/patch-ab:+++ configure  Sat Nov 29 22:50:24 1997
patches/patch-ac:+++ libtiff/        Mon Dec  1 00:20:35 1997
