 Just for curiosity: what's the 6 in SunOS 6.9?

 I have analyzed the problem. The call chain looks like this:
 ./configure =>
          ./config/missing --run makeinfo --help
 ./config/missing =>
          ${WRAPPER_BIN}/makeinfo --help
 ${WRAPPER_BIN}/makeinfo =>
          ${PKGSRCDIR}/mk/gnu-config/missing makeinfo --help
 ${PKGSRCDIR}/mk/gnu-config/missing =>
          sed -n '/^@setfilename/ { s/.* \([^ ]*\) *$/\1/; p; q; }' --help
          (in line 284)
 I don't know how to fix the problem properly. As a workaround try 
 pressing ^D instead of ^C, which will continue the build process.
