Thanks, having a blank mk.conf fixed the problem however this must me
documented at
I was pretty close to just give up on NetBSD and abandon my
NetBSD-based projects after all those months of having problems with
compiling of the base system. And gaving to compile all the binaries I
needed by hand. All this becouse of this undocumented issue. 
And I am a very patient guy.
It also suprises me a simple thing like CPU flag could break the build.
Thanks again.
