I've finished the make build by moving the lib in /usr/pkg/lib out of the way.
I'll try to do another make build this evening, and see if it still does it.
It may very well be that my toolchain wasn't very clean. I was upgrading
from -current of early October which had the egcs chain as default. I had
considerable problems with that build, and switched back from egcs to
gcc-2.7.2 yesterday. Maybe I forgot to rebuild something before I started
the make build. I'll build again, and let you know whether the problem
is still there.
