Mark V. let me know that it was now broken (after my commit) because it

My problem should be fixed with new revision: 1.78 of bootstrap.

Either BSD/OS 4.3.1 make is broken or a few of the Makefiles in
bootstrap-pkgsrc are broken.

It was automatically cleaning some directories after the builds, so I had
to use the new installed libnbcompat.

But then I was told libnbcompat wasn't installed. And I saw it never ran
an "install" target. So under BSD/OS, the native make was also doing
"install" (and "clean") automatically. Weird. Sometimes the order was that
the clean was before the install!

So I made it use bmake for building libnbcompat. It didn't install (which
is fine) and it didn't clean (which is needed).

By the way, I should switch the rest of the make's to be
$prefix/bin/bmake (other than initial make to bootstrap bmake). I only
changed the ones that were broken for me.
