In fact, I just realized that I recently built it on both a.out systems
and ELF systems so it is definitely nothing to do with that.  The fish
is crimson and should be ignored.  What else is different between your
installation and mine?  Anyone else trying to build it that can offer
more clues?

I have built this on the following system:
  NetBSD 1.4C
  NetBSD 1.4K
  NetBSD 1.4Q
  NetBSD 1.4S
  NetBSD 1.4T

I have knowledge that it was built under 1.3.3 (Greg, confirm?)
