I believe this to be caused by :

Modified Files:
        src/bin/sh: parser.c

Log Message:
Detect unmatched quotes inside old style command substitution.
echo `"`

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.

Kind regards
