That's a suboptimal error message, but looking at that file, it becomes 
obvious what is happening here:

     # ifndef mach_type_known
         --> unknown machine type
     # endif

I'm wondering why you could even start to build the package, since there 
is the following line in the package Makefile:

     NOT_FOR_PLATFORM+= *-*-alpha *-*-sparc64 *-*-x86_64

Please run "bmake show-var VARNAME=MACHINE_PLATFORM". I'm curious what 
this says.
