As I said, they have worked for years. The entries sort of grew over
time and I was not even sure what they all did. I know that some of
them were pkgsrc related and I assumed that anything not needed would
simply be ignored.

Well, some of them are pkgsrc variables so I couldn't get rid of all of
them anyway. In any case I dropped MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX and tried again
and it worked. I was able to rebuild and install -current this morning.

I am off now to study MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX and why it acts differently in
the environment and mk.conf.
