(I'm filing this from my mail-server, so I manually corrected/replaced

pkgsrc was recently updated.
Doing "make update" on www/arena on my AMD64 system fails to install.
I noticed that the last buildline referred to "...//arena" (note the
double-slash), while the install wanted ".../netbsd/arena".
On my (amd64) system:
cd /usr/pkgsrc/www/arena && make update
The real fix is probably fixing a half-way bogus system identification,
