	Root doesn't have /usr/pkg/bin in its path.  Therefore when
	building a package which builds another package the system
	fails as the dependent package tries to use the newly installed
	package and it fails to find the binary.


	Don't add /usr/pkg/bin to your path and try and build packages
	that require other packages (e.g. gmake).

	I think the appropriate fix is to add /usr/pkg/bin
	(and /usr/pkg/sbin) to the root path.  Failing that
	documenting the fact that it needs to be setup.
