I believe this to be caused by
Detect unmatched quotes inside old style command substitution.
Coincidentally, I had the same problem building perl (without pkgsrc)
last week with a /bin/sh that also croaks on unmatched quotes inside
backticks. If you look for the string "finc" (1st or 2nd match, I don't
remember) in makedepend.SH in the perl source, you'll find the
unmatched quote somewhere in a sed command.
