This doesn't work because crunchgen(1) expects BSD makefile (,, etc.).  You have to either a) write BSD makefiles for gqview &
all its dependencies, or b) teach pkgsrc to build crunch-ready objects.

b) will require getting pkgsrc ready for cross compiling, which is considered Hard.

How about c) to extract the files from a binary package, which was previously built? At least this would decouple building of binary packages (probably on the target platform) and extracting them onto the miniroot.
