I have a problem with a pkgsrc/pkgtools/x11-links package in 
a new machine (ibm A30 laptop). The system is running a 
current operating system and pkgsrc-tree is also new.
The version of XF86 is 4.2.0.

The error message is of the form:

# make
====> Configuring ......
=> Linking X11 .....
/cvs/pkgsrc/pkgtools/x11-links/work/.buildlink/include/DPS/ColorSB.h: not 
found *** Error code 127

It seems to me that some environment variables are not properly 
defined during the makefile processing. For example, the error given above
can be avoided by defining the DIRNAME environment variable.
In such a case, however, other problems appear on 'make install' phase
(i.e. PLIST file is searched from a wrong place and SORT environment 
variable is not defined)

I had this same problem on this machine with netbsd release 1.5.2
with a new pkgsrc-tree. However, on the other machine, running a slightly 
older operating system with a 1.5ZA kernel, x11-links package works 
fluently. /etc/mk.conf files are perhaps slightly different on these two 
machines, but I do not think that being the reason for these problems.
Currently, on my laptop, /etc/mk.conf file defines only TOOLDIR and 
sets USETOOLS=yes.

Any ideas ?
