I can install www/elinks and pretend this never happened...
I have no clever idea how to substitute Solaris "which" with something
that behaves like other OSes, nor how to rewrite the Makefile to achieve
the same selection in a more portable way.
An enduring solution would be to create a package "bwhich" and install
it during bootstrap, like bmake, nbsed, etc. There were other packages
that had to be patched due to the unusual behaviour of "which". But I
admit that legacy Solarises are such a corner case that it is probably
not worth the effort.
