I have the same on 5.99.51/amd64. This is a shell syntax problem in
all the Xorg libs, including libX11, libXext and so on. The workaround
that I found is to install mksh and set CONFIG_SHELL=/usr/pkg/bin/mksh
in mk.conf.

work and conduct experiments, for he who performs not practical work
nor makes experiments will never attain the least degree of mastery.
