This is a 1.3.2 / 1.3.3 difference. Does anyone still consider it a bug?
(i.e., worthy of a send-pr) I only discovered it because I have a couple
of machines running 1.3.2 at home.
On 1.3.3, /usr/share/mk/bsd.own.mk is:
$NetBSD: bsd.own.mk,v 22.214.171.124 1998/11/07 01:12:25 cgd Exp $
and on 1.3.2, it's:
$NetBSD: bsd.own.mk,v 126.96.36.199 1998/02/07 00:32:36 mellon Exp $
The difference is that 188.8.131.52 has the GNU_MACHINE_ARCH mappings in it.
Until recently, pkgsrc had a makefile with these mappings.
