I wonder why people keep thinking that the last few lines of a failure
are more useful than the first ones...  looking at this, one cannot know
what went wrong, just that something failed.  So please post a full
log (if the following doesn't fix it).

Anyway, do a "make clean CLEANDEPENDS=YES" and try again.  Also make
sure you have the latest pkgsrc from HEAD, as there were some serious
problems the last few days.
