        Prince of Songkla University
System: NetBSD 5.1 NetBSD 5.1 (JADE-1.12-20101117) #5: Wed 
Nov 17 05:30:55 ICT 2010 i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
        The (package, not pkgsrc) Makefiles for sysutils/boxbackup-client
        and sysutils/boxbackup use a make feature (-C) not found in
        NetBSD 5 (or earlier) versions of make.

        Why anyone would ever do
                make -C docs htmlguide/man-html/bbackupd.html
        instead of
                cd docs && make htmlguide/man-html/bbackupd.html

        which this package does, I don't want to attempt to contemplate.
        It (along with the -C option to make) is just plain stupid, but
        that's what it does...

        Use a NetBSD 5.0 or NetBSD 4.0 (or anything earlier) system to
        attempt to build sysutils/boxbackup-client (or ...-server)

        I use pkg_comp with NetBSD 5.0 (and/or NetBSD 4.0) sets installed
        and libkver to properly (mostly) simulate the correct execution

        (The NetBSD 5 uses X11_TYPE=native, NetBSD 4 uses X1_TYPE=modular,
        bot use USE_DESTDIR=no .. none of that is relevant to this PR).

        In that environment expect to see ...

        Apply the patch below.   Note this patch assumes that someone
        actually takes the patch that's in PR 42704 (since Jan 2010)
        and applies it...  Without that, this patch won't help.
        Adding patches/patch-* files to each package to remove the
        uses of make -C would also fix the problem.  Using gmake
        would probably work as well (but I haven't tested either of
        those methods, this one worked fine for me, I have the patch
        from PR 42704 applied, and have had since Jan 2010...)

        Note this patch applies in pkgsrc/sysutils as it patches the
        Makefiles for both boxbackup-client and boxbackup-server.
