   |  If this works in NetBSD 5, perhaps bmake has been fixed to deal with

 OK, I did that, and everything works.   That is, I installed devel/bmake
 then just ...
        cp /usr/pkg/bin/bmake /usr/bin/make
 and after that sysutils/bacula-gnome-console built correctly.   I know
 that's not the right way to do this, but it worked for me - perhaps someone
 who knows how it should be done in pkgsrc could make bacula-gnome-console
 have a build time dependency upon devel/bmake for NetBSD 4, and use that
 (bmake) instead of make.
        [Aside, this is one of the advantages of using pkg_comp, that
         kind of gross hackery is trivially done, all safe in the
         knowledge that it will all be thrown away when the sandbox next
         gets recreated, which will be before I use it for anything else.]
 I took a fairly quick look at the make CVS logs, and didn't see what
 particular change fixed this problem (if I actually identified it
 correctly).   I see a couple of fixes for lines > 64KB that were after
 NetBSD 4.0, but that isn't the problem here, the line in question is
 less than 64KB, and make didn't crash, just reported a syntax error.
