i'm not sure, but I'm having similar problems on alpha. If you just do
again in devel/gmake does it work? My problem seems to not be with
building a pkg directly but rather when a build is triggered by a depends.
haven't had time to fully figure out why or even be able to reliably
reproduce this yet.
