I've personally built the whole amanda suite under 1.3.2/i386.  I have one
patch installed, though.

IIRC, you need to update the 1.3.2 /usr/share/mk/ to the 1.3.3
version.  Apart from makeing pkgsrc work this change should not affect
building 1.3.2 systems (but I haven't tested the latter).

Changes to the package are the wrong solution.

I don't recall problems with building packages on 1.3.2 that aren't fixed
by using the 1.3.3
