"make show-depends-dirs" does not handle BUILD_DEPENDS on nonexisting
packages.  You can see this by adding a line such as

   BUILD_DEPENDS+= nonexisting>=0.62:../../devel/nonexisting

to a package:

   > make show-depends-dirs
   cd: can't cd to ../../devel/nonexisting
   usage: dirname path
   usage: basename string [suffix]
   usage: basename string [suffix]
   devel/gmake / graphics/png pkgtools/x11-links

The "make show-depends-dirs" has two problems:
1. It returns success, so the bulk script does not notice that the pkg is
   broken when it builds the dependency graph.
2. The dependencies listed by "make show-depends-dirs" does contain "/"
   which means that the bulk build eventually want to build "/" (which
   means that it runs "make" in ${pkgsrc_dir}).
