As reported in PR pkg/39909 by Volkmar Seifert security/mcrypt
fails to compile (configure) currently.
Aside from that, the error by which it reports failure to
compile has bad grammar ...
.../.buildlink/include/mutils/mincludes.h:112:2: error: #error Cannot
find either INT_MAX, INTMAX, or MAXINT
"either" is only properly used with alternatives (2 options).
Here there are three. The error should say
Cannot find any of INT_MAX, INTMAX, or MAXINT
or if someone really needs to use "either"
Cannot find either INT_MAX, or either INTMAX or MAXINT
the latter giving alternatives, in which the 2nd alternative
itself has alternatives.
Attempt to build security/mcrypt currently.
I used pkg_comp with NetBSD 4.0 release sets (without X sets,
but with X11_TYPE=modular - not that mcrypt is going to care)
Volkmar Seifert apparently used NetBSD 3.1 - so NetBSD version
seems to be irrelevant.
Just build it - try to build it, the error occurs.
Either fix the grammar in the #error line, or just fix PR 39909 so
no-one ever notices...
