I have received this error with mail/mailwrapper and lang/lua4:

 bmake: don't know how to make /usr/share/groff/tmac/tmac.andoc. Stop

They both use style Makefiles.

My workaround for lang/lua4 was:

  bmake CATDEPS=/usr/share/groff/1.19/tmac/andoc.tmac

Then lua4 built and installed fine.

This tmac file was installed from the pkgsrc groff package.

My bmake mk files are from the pkgsrc mk-files package. The file
share/mk/ defines:

 CATDEPS?=      ${TMACDIR}/tmac.andoc \

Any suggestions on a correct fix for this?

Thank you,
