By the time "make build" got that far, it had overwritten your
/usr/share/mk with new bsd.*.mk files. Those may work properly with
your 1.3.2 make, or they may try and use new features which aren't in
the old 1.3.2 make binary.

It shouldn't have even tried to build compile_et unless you already
had a /usr/src/domestic. You may have gotten an empty
/usr/src/domestic (with the right permissions) just by installing the
snapshot. If so, that's arguably a bug in /usr/src/Makefile, and
a PR is in order.
