pkgsrc has wrappers and buildlink3, which tries to isolate the pkg build
environment to the expressed dependencies.  So you really have to debug
this within pkgsrc.   But you can do that by looking at config.log, or
if really desperate, by doing "bmake configure" and then adding "set -x"
at the beginning.   Probably you'll find that the cc invocation from
configure didn't work right for some reason that isn't really about

Another question is if you are generally able to build things and if
this is the exception.  I'm guessing that's the case from how you
phrased the question, but I always like to check for higher-level
