When attempting to clean-depends archivers/rar-bin on Slackware Lunix
10.2, it goes haywire:

pkg_path: ``../../emulators/_base'' not found
pkg_path: ``../../emulators/_compat'' not found
test: /usr/pkgsrc/Makefile: unexpected operator
===> Cleaning for digest-20060826
bmake: don't know how to make show-depends-pkgpaths. Stop
bmake: don't know how to make clean. Stop

bmake: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/CVS
test: stopped: unexpected operator
cd: can't cd to /usr/pkgsrc/archivers/rar-bin/../../bmake:
test: stopped: unexpected operator
===> x11
===> x11/9term

At this point, it has backgrounded and I have to pkill -t "/dev/`tty`" to stop the flood of cleanage that follows. Other targets (except the readme one which I complained about malfunctioning globally and I will send-pr about in a sec) seem to work just fine, though.

This was using branch 2007Q2 updated from CVS minutes ago.

Note: this was previously sent to pkgsrc-users, but this seems to be a more appropriate place. The problem persists in the current CVS tree (that is, again with a delay of a few minutes :^).
cd archivers/rar-bin &&
exec make clean-depends
No fix is currently known.
