First off...minor issue, but we're using ${PKG_SYSCONFDIR} to represent
where the config files go, now.  So, you'll need to find how ETCDIR is
being set by the configure script, and make is use ${PKG_SYSCONFDIR}
instead.  This is usually done by passing --sysconfdir=${PKG_SYSCONFDIR}
to the configure script.

For some reason, I don't see -L/usr/pkg/share/x11-links/lib above.  This
is probably some problem in where LDFLAGS isn't being used
properly.  I see in the output you provided that LDFLAGS is correct during
the configure phase, but is wrong during the build phase.

I hope this helps you track down the problem.  If you need more help, feel
free to tar up your package and provide a URL and I can take a look.
