I don't know whether this is the right place to report a pkgsrc bug. If not 
please feel free to relocate it.

DragonFly has now mempcpy() and print/a2ps doesn't check for it in configure 
phase. Therefore, print/a2ps will only work on systems that don't have 

Try to build print/a2ps in a system that has mempcpy().
The proper fix is to add a check for mempcpy(). It should not be any different 
to the one for memcpy(). The configure script should set HAVE_MEMPCPY if it is 
found so the #define mempcpy(...) in lib/path-concat.c won't take place.
