I tried make clean's (a few of them in libs and meta pkg for gnome)
and it still failed. Then I realised I had the pkgsrc tree from the US
and the distfiles from the rmit mirror in Aus. So I deleted the tree
and reinstalled a new one from the mirror. Then it worked.
Exactly why I don't know but perhaps : "mirrors ain't mirrors."
